How many times can you call in sick before you get fired?
Fake notes for work, also called a sick note, is a document produced by a GP or other medical professional. The note confirms the patient’s appointment, confirms a medical treatment and provides some details about the illness. It can be used as an excuse to miss work or school.
The note may be handwritten, or it may be computer-generated. Regardless of the type, it should have a few key elements.
The most important part of the note is the title. It must contain an official title, such as a Physician’s Statement for Medical Absence. Other useful bits include the name of the facility, the date of the appointment, and the reason for the medical visit.
Forged notes have become a common occurrence, especially at retail counters. In fact, millions of “fake” notes are passed over the counter each year. Unlike the original, the fake is not recognizable until it is examined by the bank.
Creating a fake note isn’t easy. You have to be careful about your choice of template. There are many sites online that offer fake doctor’s note templates. They can be downloaded for free. Using these templates is not legal, but they can be useful to create a fake doctor’s note.
