    Forensic Document Examination and Forgery Analysis

    (this is in place of the scheduled webinar on Body Language)

    Far more crimes are committed with paper than with guns, and many more times the amount of money and power changes hands illegally through the stroke of a pen than through physical violence. This session will provide a detailed look at the use of scientific principles, knowledge and applied techniques in forensic document examination, forgery analysis and counterfeit identifications. Related fraud issues involving various types of materials and documents will be discussed. Topics to be covered include: 

    • Authorship of handwriting, signatures and initials
    • Alterations, additions or deletions in documentation
    • Establishment of date, source, history and relationship of documents
    • Identification of paper, ink and writing instruments
    • Identification of Mechanical Impressions
    • Identification of typewriter and computer generated documents
