It is the creation of a false document with the intent of deceiving someone. This can include creating fake passports, driving licences, birth certificates, selling fake designer goods, importing fake products and counterfeiting currency.
Forgery charges may overlap with counterfeiting and you may therefore be faced with multiple charges. Counterfeiting is the process of creating replicas of items with the intent of passing them off as the genuine item. Counterfeiting and forgery can carry a custodial sentence of up to 10 years, as well as substantial fines.
It is imperative to obtain legal advice at an early stage for guidance and support of your case. Eldwick Law’s team of expert fraud solicitors can assist you with every step of the process.
