A Counterfeit is a copy or replica of an item, particularly legal tender
or currency, but more often now related to clothing, software or other
tangible goods. This is usually considered a
white collar crime in which an individual or organization will create counterfeit items,
usually with the intention of selling them or passing them off as originals.
In the case of currency, counterfeiting can result in a prison sentence
of up to 15 years, along with serious fines. Counterfeiting charges are
actively and aggressively prosecuted by both state and federal prosecutors.
Counterfeiting includes currency as well as goods, such as designer clothes,
watches and jewelry. Additionally, counterfeiting may be used in the commission of
credit card fraud, when credit cards are recreated or copied in order to make fraudulent
or unauthorized charges.
