A forged or fraudulent will purports to be a last will and testament that has been created or altered by someone other than the person whose name it bears, or that contains false statements or information. This type of will is not legally binding and can be challenged in court. If a forged or fraudulent will is discovered, the court may uphold an earlier will or distribute the deceased's assets according to the laws of intestacy.
