What is counterfeiting?

In general terms, counterfeiting refers to the act of duplicating an item, such as currency. In the United States, replicating currency with the intent to defraud is a federal crime. In Chapter 25 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, §471 states that:

"Whoever…falsely makes, forges, counterfeits, or alters any obligation or other security of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both."

The penalties for counterfeiting and forgery are steep; if convicted, you could face up to two decades in prison for counterfeiting U.S. currency, combined with the possibility of heavy fines. Because of this, it is imperative that you work with a qualified defense attorney.
