Scientist Interview

Alex: Good morning Luke, care to take a seat?

Alex: so mister Luke what do you do for a living?

Luke: I study and analyse handwriting samples.

Alex:  When you are measuring the angles of letters, what method are you using?

Luke: well usually Mister Alex, I like to use a protractor so I can easily measure the letter slants and angles.

Alex: So, Luke, what is another way you can figure out the note is a forgery?

Luke: when comparing the two samples, I check for their unusual letter formations like the symbol ‘&’ instead of the word ‘and’ or the symbol for addition +. And If I see any slight differences, I know it’s a forgery.

Alex:  What equipment do you use for your work?

Luke: Well I usually I use compound and stereo microscopes to see even the tiniest differences in the words and letters. I also use rulers and protractors to measure and see the slants on the letters.

Alex: Has anyone used another way of forgery without writing?

Luke: Well, there was this incident where a blackmailer cut out letters from magazines and glued them to the paper making sure that their handwriting couldn’t be analysed.

Alex: Is it just criminals that forge, or can family forge as well?

Luke: Well, there was this incident where the parents of George Harrison wrote the wrong address of where he died on his death certificate so that the location of his death wasn’t a shrine to fans.

Alex: Well, that’s all the time we have, so thanks for coming Luke!

Luke: My pleasure!
