Here is what hand-writing expert Robert Floberg has concluded about the signatures on the Simecom contract that I supposedly took out.
Mr. Paul Spadoni of Gig Harbor, WA contacted me on 6/16/2021 and requested a forensic examination of a scanned document in .pdf form: Q1 – copy of a Simecom Utility Contract “Contratto” bearing 13 of his questioned/ostensible signatures. Mr. Spadoni also provided copies of his passport and Washington State Driver’s license for “non-requested” samples of his signature. (By “non-requested”
this term refers to authoring a valid or holographic signature during the course of everyday business - at a time when disguise or alteration of one’s signature is not consciously an issue in the creation of the signature.) While copies, these documents are clear and adequate for examination.
Visual examination was made of all writing characteristics: writing size, slant, letter forms, comparative relationships between the size of the upper case to lower case letters, letter connections or lack thereof, pen pressure, rhythm, spacing, baseline relationships, tremor, pen ticks, unconscious handwriting habits, and several other handwriting characteristics that are evident in natural handwriting and that are unique in combination to each individual writer. All of the above submitted material is scanned and/or machine copied, not original inked documents, but noted to be clear and adequate for examination. Original documents may be requested at a future time.
The disputed signatures of Mr. Spadoni on document Q1 show little or no consistency with the habits and characteristics observed in Mr. Spadoni’s known signatures that are provided for this examination. The 13 “signatures” examined on the disputed contract Q1 are simulated forgeries.

Mr. Floberg then offered to testify in court, using jury exhibits and overheads. Wouldn’t that be a great experience—being an expert witness in Lucca, Italy? We could ask Simecom to pay all his travel expenses once the company lost its case! I forwarded the report, along with Mr. Floberg’s extensive and impressive curriculum vitae, to the lawyer and the company’s finance and account director.
