Forgery / Possession Of Fictitious Instruments
Criminal possession of a fictitious instrument is a serious crime in the state of Texas. Those charged with this crime must knowingly possess and use a fictitious instrument for the purpose of fraud. Such tools that qualify as fictitious instruments include, but are not limited to:
