Understanding Forgery & Fraud

Forgery is committed in many forms, and each warrants severe legal and financial consequences. It is typically defined as being the crime of falsely making or altering a writing, which affects the legal rights or obligations of another person. Commonly used in conjunction with various types of fraud, theft, and identity theft, forgery may involve many different situations.

Common types of forgery include:

  • Check forgery

  • Credit card fraud


  • Travelers check forgery

These crimes involve endorsing and/or presenting a forged check, travelers check, or credit card account check to a financial institution such as a bank, credit union, or check cashing establishment. Due to the increase of modern computers and online banking technologies, check forgery is very common today. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, we offer personal attention and knowledgeable legal assistance from Worcester criminal defense lawyers.

Proficient Representation for Forgery Cases

In the state of Massachusetts, you may be accused of forgery if you falsely manufacture, alter, or change any paper, document, check, or other type of instrument. If you are found in possession of a written instrument that has been falsified, or if you present or offer any document that has been forged or falsified, you may be charged with forgery. Not all forgery cases, however, have to do with stealing money, stealing credit cards, or forging checks.

If you have ever attempted to obtain employment or seek medical care under a name or identification other than your own, you may be charged with fraud or forgery. While these types of forgery may be victimless crimes, they can still impact your future, your ability to seek employment, and your reputation. The Worcester criminal defense lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can work hard to defend your case in court.
