Counterfeiting is the intentional copying or forging of something in order to pass it off as being genuine. This is most commonly associated with money such as bills, checks and coins. However, counterfeiting can also be used for making fake watches, purses, designer clothes, jewelry and other fashion items. In addition, important documents can be counterfeited. Counterfeiting is a very serious federal offense and if charged, you are faced with up to 15 years of jail time along with hefty fines.

We will work hard to prove otherwise and to mitigate potential criminal penalties.
