Author(s): V. C. Misra, Shruti Gupta, S. K. Shukla
Abstract: Forgery means making a false document with intent to defraud. It is one of the techniques of fraud that includes identity theft. On exploring the concept of forgery, the easiest and commonly attempted one is the traced forgery in which a forger tries to reproduce the exact outlines of the model by some tracing process. A traced forgery thus committed necessarily bears a closest resemblance and exactly similar mathematical measurements with the model. For the present investigation a peculiar real time case has been undertaken in which there were two disputed signatures with strictly similar style of writing and due to unavailability of specimen, an inter-se examination of these two disputed signatures has been carried out. The results revealed that the two disputed signatures were â€˜Companion Traced Forgeryâ€™.
