Forgery

Goods and documents can be forged. Most forged documents are made with the intention of falsely state, that a certain transaction has taken place, a permission been given or a guarantee issued. Most forged documents contain easily identifiable evidence, that they are not original.

Original goods are being forged more and more, predominantly in Asia. Many of the goods are inferior, and with the advancement of technology it is almost without exception possible to identify the forged goods.
