The article analyzes traditional and modern methods and means of technical forgery. The methods and modern devices by which the issue of technical forgery of the signature are solved are covered. Particular attention is given to modern methods and means, namely: electrophotographic method, inkjet-drop method, the transfer of the original signature dye of the document by wet copying, the drawing of the signature using a plotter. Features that characterize the appropriate method and means of signature forgery are described.
The problems of research of this kind of signatures are reflected and attention is paid to the fact that cases of technical falsification of records have become more frequent. Given this fact, it has emphasized the need for an improved methodology for investigation of signatures and short entries, made using the means of techniques and tools, which will outline a clear algorithm for solving this issue.
The research of signatures on the subject of technical training is mandatory for identification handwriting research, and therefore requires special attention. In expert practice, there are various cases of technical falsification of signatures made by modern methods and means. In this connection, the expert needs continuous training in this direction in order to “keep up” with the development of computerized devices.
Key words: signature research, signature forgery, means of techniques, electrophotographic method, inkjet-drop method, embossing, redrawing, copying, plotter, pantograph, facsimile.
