Forgery Defense Attorneys In Pennsylvania
Forgery can take many forms. Any time a person fraudulently alters the writing of another person on a check or financial statement without valid authority or purpose, he or she has committed criminal forgery. Examples of forgery include:
- Forging another person's signature on a check
- Opening a false bank account under a false name
- Changing the amount of a refund check (e.g., changing a check from $30 to $300)
- Employees who give a friend or third party false refunds by increasing the amount refunded
Forgery offenses may violate federal law - including federal banking laws - in certain circumstances. When checks and other financial documents are fraudulently altered, defendants face multiple criminal charges.
