Document Authentication for Corporate Documents
Fake or false documents feature in the majority of modern financial frauds and are the greatest menace facing in the international trading community.
Financial institutions, traders, insurance companies, shipping agents and other intermediaries all rely on transport documents such as Bills of Lading, Seaway Bills, Airway Bills, CMR and FCR when making decisions. A document that appears genuine can induce a bank to pay for goods or finance a trade. It can prompt an insurance company to grant cover on a ship or shipment, or indemnify a fraudulent claimant. It may lead a shipping agent to release a cargo to someone that is not entitled to it.
It is important to remember that any document can be forged. In today's business world, fake documents mostly copy the style of a legitimate trader and it can be difficult for a non-experienced eye to spot the difference.
Incorporation and formation documents are all very important legal documents, as well as merger documents. If your business is expanding its operations, you’ll see real estate and leasing paperwork being checked internationally. Patent applications and trademark paperwork must work across borders.
