Man caught impersonating mother

Posted on April 28th, 2010 No Comments

A Washington County man was arrested this week for faking his mother’s signature on fraudulent inheritance documents in an effort to cut his siblings out of her will.

State police in Fort Edward report that the 59-year-old man forged his mother’s signature on a deed to her house as well as on two fake copies of her Last Will & Testament.

Police were able to uncover the fraud following complaints from the man’s siblings and the fact that the documents were improperly notarized.

The man was charged with Grand Larceny, Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument, and Offering a False Instrument for Filing. Further charges are pending.

Luckily police were able to catch this cheat before he managed to successfully change his mother’s will.
