So the researcher had seen this problem of fraud and forgery in the country and has decided to bring out same solution to stop this or reduce the rate of this problem.
Now the question is that does it mean that all this measures for fraud and forgery control has no impact in the banking industry? Why do we still experience fraud and forgery despite all this measures such as internal and external another, generalities for fraud less, adequate call over etc. still we experience fraud and forgery. It is of this reason that I researcher had forgery.
