Only words? Forensic document examinations consider content and context
Abstract: Fraud investigations almost inevitably require documentary evidence to be examined — and it’s not a job for amateurs. Professional forensic document examiners review not only the content of documents. They also consider physical and latent evidence, such as handwriting, alterations and faded or decomposed material. To ensure accuracy and opinions that will stand up in court, experts follow scientific procedures and use technologies such as electrostatic detection apparatus.
