Default Re: forged signature on a closed case concerning the mortgage

I wish to inform you that Florida Statutes Section 831.01 has jurisdiction in this matter. Further, a person commits forgery when, with intent to injure or defraud any person, he or she "falsely makes, alters, forges or counterfeits" any written instrument specified in the state forgery statute. The burden to prove forgery will be on you. Florida classifies basic forgery as a felony of the third degree with sentences up to five years in jail, five years probation, $5,000 in fines. You may contact the law enforcement agencies and seek guidance. Alternatively, you may seek guidance from an attorney.
