Your Signature Isn’t Always as it Seems – Handwriting Forgery Analysis

The methods to detect document forgery vary based on the type of forgery committed; it requires a trained eye, a specialist to assist in the detection. For instance, attorneys will contact us to have our handwriting document specialist examine writings for qualities that may indicate a forgery. Our Handwriting expert looks for points at which the alleged forger started and stopped while writing or other evidence of a conscious formation of letters. Such a lack of fluidity is an indication of document forgery since writing is done without thinking of your next pen stroke.

This is a case where we were called upon to examine a contract that was allegedly signed by an employee, Bob, who had authorization to engage into contracts with manufacturing companies [...]

Using Handwriting Analysis to Prove a Forged Will

While a forged or fraudulent will may seem like a plot twist in a novel or movie, it’s a crime that happens more often than people think.

For example, a home care aide who takes care of an elderly shut-in decides she deserves more money once the family patriarch has died since she’s cared for him more than his children. She creates a new will and forges the signature of the sick man to scam his family out of some of their inheritance.

However, more often than not, document forgery of a will is committed by a relative of the deceased. The family member may feel he is entitled to more assets than what’s outlined in the will, or she may have a grievance with other [...]

Today’s Investigative Skills

Unfortunately, some people continue to hold onto old stereotypes. Uninformed members of the general public still envision a private investigator as a trench coat-wearing figure, hiding behind a newspaper in a motel lobby.

They not only know, they deeply respect the fact that many private investigators are amazingly talented researchers.

Intellectually, we are at the top. At International Investigators, we take great pride in our skill sets and our track record. Most of the [...]

Forensic Examiner Resolves Case with Handwriting Analyst Investigation

We could hear someone sobbing in the background. The attorney on the phone said he was with a very distraught client and wondered if we thought International Investigators could help. The client had fathered a child with a woman and she had died. They were engaged to be married and the little girl was the center of their lives, but the father wasn’t in a position at that moment to take custody of the child. So while he was getting a new life in order for him as a parent, he accepted the offer of her parents to take care of the baby.

He’d done it all – moved, gotten a new job that paid more, arranged for daycare and had even set up a [...]
