Our speaker this month was Paul Leadbeater who spoke on the subject of “Counterfeiting and Forgery of Identity Documents”, and we were joined by 25 guests.

Paul had worked in the Vetting Department of West Yorkshire CID before retiring to establish his own consultancy and training company. His talk concentrated on fraudulent identity documents.

Paul explained the difference between Counterfeiting – passing off an item – and Forgery – involving changes to documents. His talk was informative and well-illustrated, and full of facts largely unknown to the general public. Paul answered a variety of questions and President Drewe Lacey gave a Vote of Thanks for a fascinating and enjoyable talk.
