Forgery relates to falsifying or counterfeiting parts or whole of a document to make it appear genuine. A company or individual who commits such acts would have committed an offence if the acts were done with the intention to injure or defraud another person or company. It is an offence which carries both criminal penalties and civil liabilities.
Forgery and falsification of documents are one of the mechanisms to commit fraud. Fraudulent activities include theft, corruption, conspiracy, money laundering, bribery and extortion. It is an act committed with an intention to deceive and dishonestly make a personal gain for oneself, or causing a loss to another.
Fraud and forgery are inter-related. For example, the effect of forging one’s signature on a contract or a Will will render them null and void because forgery involves an element of fraud.
