    How to understand this question?

    Hi,

    Can you tell me what does this sentence mean?


    He increased his income by forgery.


    After finishing the definition of "forgery", I still feel puzzled.

    It means either that he earned more money by working as a forger for a criminal organisation, or that he forged money for his own use, or artwork to sell.
