Used by accountholder to attest forgery - (e.g. - check amount altered, payee name altered, endorsement forged, etc.).

Since the document is entitled "Affidavit of Forgery", does SC law mandate that it be notorized?

Generally an affidavit should be notarized. For purposes of recordation or acceptance into a court of law, it needs to be attested to/sworn to before an officer of the state, i.e. a notary public. However, many state agencies, such as DOT, will accept affidavits that are not notarized. Short answer is - it depends on what you intend to do with it. Most likely it should be notarized.
