This book guides you how to verify the signatures. It describes the rules of signature verification with examples. It contains some exercise for signature comparison to help you develop the skill of signature comparison. You ought to learn how to compare signatures till an electronic machine is invented to do the duty for you or till paperless banking Is introduced. Today, there is one electronic machine marketed by a US manufacturer. Autosig Systems, which captures signature cards and displays them on the screen as and when required for the screen purpose of comparison. Which is, however, still a manual job. But there is a hope that soon an electronic machine will come that will not only store and retrieve specimen signatures but also compare the signatures but also compare the signatures on the documents. Once this machine is invented, hopefully by Autosig Systems itself, it would be a tremendous boon to you as you run risks in acting on certain signed documents. But till such a machine comes, here is this book to help you. The book also tells you the legal Implications of signatures. This book will also be useful to banking teachers and to police officials who teach signature verification in banks.
