Forgery versus Fraud

Forgery is the crime of creating a false document, altering a document, or writing a false signature for the illegal benefit of the person doing so. This is similar to fraud and counterfeiting, but there are distinct differences. Counterfeiting is a specialized term for such actions only where they relate to fake money and documents exchangeable for cash, such as stock certificates. Fraud is a generalized term encompassing any illegal act in which deceptive or deceitful means are used to defraud the victim. Forgery is more specific and refers to the use of false documents for that purpose.

In the creation of false documents, the act must have some legal significance to be considered a crime. If you have been accused of fraud, do not make any statements to police, as these may be used against you.
