Common Types of Forgery
In many cases of alleged forgery, the accused did not intentionally forge or alter any documents. Sometimes, these people are themselves victims of scams that are designed to cheat honest people out of their money. For instance, a person receives a fake check, takes it to the bank and tries to deposit it. The teller, after determining that it is a fake check, calls the police and the unknowing person is arrested for forgery.
Forgeries include checks, but can also include:
- Driver’s licenses
- Social security cards
- Employment documents
- Birth certificates
- Counterfeit money
- Other documents
