Detailed Analysis of Selected Cases
Counterfeit currency detector canada regarded as an especially serious offence. It strikes at the heart of the political and economic system. Those who fake money are, in effect, challenging one of the most important perquisites of sovereignty, and therefore the foundations of the state itself. Furthermore, anything that seriously destabilizes the currency can threaten national prosperity. It is precisely for this reason that, when states engage in economic warfare with each other, one popular trick has long been to counterfeit each other’s currency.
Counterfeiting, not as a tool of covert statecraft, but merely as a means of making illegal money, in both senses of the term, has a long history, probably as long as money itself. Since paper became the principle medium of exchange in the West, counterfeiting has gone through roughly distinct three stages, each dictated by the state of technology.
Indeed, there is probably no other economic crime so conditioned by technological change as currency counterfeiting. The technology almost by itself can determine whether the act is carried out en masse by underground groups who then have complex logistical problems in getting it into circulation, or by opportunists who knock off a few specimens and directly use them.
Throughout most of the 19th Century, when individual banks printed their own currency notes, counterfeiting was largely entrepreneurial in nature. A crime of opportunity, it attracted every species of artisan from professional printers to snake-oil salesmen.
The Counterfeit currency detector canada lithographic printing techniques were inexpensive and relatively easy to use (though obviously a more skilled printer produced a better product), security measures were simple to break, and distribution was no great problem. The batches of notes tended to be small, and in some cases, counterfeiting was so endemic, merchants actually preferred good counterfeits of the notes of sound and well-known banks to real notes issued by small and relatively unknown banks – the fakes were easier to pass!
When governments took over a monopoly of the business of printing paper money, the counterfeiting craft shifted. The uniformity of national currencies was itself an impediment to opportunistic incidents.
The more familiar the populace was with the notes, the harder to pass fakes; and the better (and therefore more time-consuming and expensive) any successful fakes had to be. Governments also introduced more sophisticated security measures. And, because counterfeiting now threatened the financial integrity of countries, rather than just of this or that financial institution, the effort put into detection was much enhanced.
The result was very high capital costs to counterfeiters. Consequently, they required long print runs to cover those costs. Furthermore, the skills required to mimic official notes were difficult to find. Techniques for passing large batches of newly minted paper had to be more sophisticated, usually more long-distance in nature, to evade detection.
Therefore, although traditional “organized crime” groups tended to avoid counterfeiting because of both the high risk of detection and visibility involved, success in counterfeiting usually required the efforts of groups with the capital, skills, and connections to pass the product. That remained generally true until the 1980s.
During the last two decades, with the spread of new digital print technologies, counterfeiting has again shifted. Although the quality of the end-product is highly variable, the use of scanners, colour printers, and colour copiers mean that counterfeiting is once more a crime of opportunity.
Of course, sophisticated groups still do get involved from time to time. As before, they use expensive equipment to simulate intaglio printing, and employ long-distance wholesale distribution networks to move large batches of bills away from the point of production.
But more and more instances of counterfeiting are the work of amateurs who print small sums using easy-to-access technology, and directly distribute them into retail trade. So far, although not enough to threaten the integrity of national currencies, at least of the major countries, opportunistic counterfeiting is sufficient of a problem to force governments to engage in an ever-more expensive technological arms race against counterfeiters.
