Time: 4:00 P.M. PDT, 7:00 P.M. EDT, 23:00 GMT

Location: Internet via Zoom conference


This presentation will cover two cases where scanners have been involved, in what the clients thought, were electronically manipulated documents. After consulting a computer expert in NY, the examination concluded the questioned area of the documents were issues with the scanner. Viewing the strange things a scanner can do, can sometimes lead an examiner to jump to the conclusion of “Cut & Paste”.
