"Examining signatures for authenticity is "not that easy."

It requires obtaining a genuine signature from the same time period – "and then it's a long process," comparing them using computer programs and such sophisticated tools as a video spectral comparator.

But if it's a forged signature, almost 100 per cent of the time we can detect the forgery."
