Definition

Forgery sign is an illegal sign by simulating or tracing a genuine signature. There are two kinds of forgery signs such as “substitution or random” and “freehand or skilled.” The former is called as “zero effort” forgery, because the forger uses his or her own signature instead of the signature to be tested. The later includes signatures imitated as closely as possible by simulating or tracing a genuine signature.
