The first image that comes to mind when one hears “counterfeit” is often money, however this criminal offense can cover a much broader area of nefarious activity than mere currency creation. Much like the crime of forgery, counterfeiting involves the production of a falsified document or falsely represented goods. Counterfeiting is considered a white collar crime, and these activities are taken quite serious by federal agents and prosecutors. If you face such charges, it is recommended for you to immediately call us for trusted help.
The end goal of counterfeiting is to replicate or imitate something and then to pass it off as original and genuine, many times with the intent of taking advantage of an item’s high worth. Among the many falsified items that can bring federal charges include:
Federal law provides for harsh penalties for those convicted of counterfeiting, including very large fines and up to 20 years in prison.
