Topic: Disguised writing

Speaker: Reed Hayes


Reed Hayes will present information on disguised writing, with emphasis on auto-forged signatures. His material is based on an ongoing research project as to what features of one’s signature are typically altered with self-disguise. To date, he has collected and evaluated nearly 100 disguised signatures. Reed will also cover primary differences between disguised writing versus simulated writing.


Reed is the author of Forensic Handwriting Examination: A Definitive Guide. He teaches a Training Course in Questioned Handwriting and Document Examination and is currently SAFE’s Education Chair.
