Advanced Protection Against Document Fraud - ICAP Ocean Tomo Announces Auction of a Counterfeit Document Detection System
Date:2/25/2011

CHICAGO, Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The threat of counterfeit documents and identity theft is increasing.  Innovations in lasers and optical scanners have made it easy for counterfeiters to create fraudulent documents, including authentic-looking bank checks among many types of documents.  It has become almost impossible for banks and merchants to be able to detect fraudulent bank checks.  Additionally, criminals create fraudulent identity documents such as driver's licenses, ID cards, airline boarding passes and much more.  At present, criminals can easily create perfect counterfeit documents to suit their many criminal purposes.  For example, an original bank check can be scanned by a hand scanner at a check cashing store and a criminal can create thousands of fraudulent bank checks that appear to be perfectly authentic.  This is the problem addressed by Thomas R. Chapman's counterfeit document detection system which will be auctioned at ICAP Ocean Tomo's Spring 2011 Live IP Auction in New York on March 31st.
