A major part of our casework is to determine whether or not a signature is genuine. One commonplace method of producing of a fraudulent signature is using a “cut and paste” method to copy a genuine signature (cut) and reproduce it onto another document (paste). This is illustrated, by overlaying the questioned and specimen signature (the model) on top of each other, highlighting the almost identical nature observed between them. Note, that the disputed signature (blue) has been shortened in its mid-section and the commencing staff has also been shortened compared to the genuine signature (red). This has been done to make it less obvious that the questioned signature has originated from a common model. The signatures have been coloured to make it easier to view the match between them.
