Forensic UVIR On Site Spectral Analysis Examination
GARY MICHAELS, has more than 50 Year's (since 1962) in the science of Forensic Document Examination. He has evolved from a Handwriting Expert to using current UVIR (Ultraviolet Infrared) Spectral Analysis Macro Photography to detect false documents that are fake. He has been retained hundreds of times by both Local and National victims of Mortgage Fraud. These are Borrowers that are targeted by fraudulent lenders and foreclosure mills that are criminals involved in Real Estate Property Theft, and are passing off fake Mortgage Documents (just like Counterfeit Money), and claiming that the documents are Genuine when in fact they are fake. The problem is that FDE's, (Forensic Document Examiners) are trained in comparing Documents and Signatures with reference to the identity of the writer but are not trained in Computer and Software Technology.
The result is that Handwriting Analysis is pointless and useless when the source of the questioned signature is a Digital "Cut & Paste" "Copy" made with Photoshop or a related Software from the original document. In other words, FDE's , and the majority of Judgesand Attorneys do not acknowledge and believe that if the Ink is "Blue" and looks like "Ball Point" Ink then the document must beauthentic aka "Wet Blue Ink Signature". This could not be further from the truth. Artifacts and digitally fake insertions are not normally seen by the naked eye. UVIR Macro Photography Spectral Analysis will expose evidence instantly of what is fake and what is a genuine document. The results are irrefutable.
