Fake or counterfeit money is regarded as one of the second oldest professions worldwide. There are multiple sources of counterfeit money in the world. Let's understand the bogus money sources in detail, along with measures.

Paper Money

Paper money was introduced in the modern period to curb the spread of fake coins in the ecosystem. While the government that faking paper money would be difficult, scammers introduce various measures to imitate real currency and create counterfeit money. Counterfeit paper money is available in various denominations, and people mistake it for real money.

Super Dollars

In case you are not aware, super dollars are known as the highest form of counterfeit money that is not easily traceable. The counterfeit money type is created using an intaglio printing process or engraved plates. The US government uses the same process to print dollars and maintain the economy.

As for printing the notes, inkjet printers and laser printing are the most common means of making super dollars.

Plastic Money

Plastic Money

Plastic money is the latest form of currency launched to curb the spread of fake money in the market. However, counterfeiting has crept into plastic money, and you can barely tell the difference by analyzing the currency. Since plastic money is made from a mixture of materials and a substitute for polymer substrate, it generates a lot of static electricity.

When a normal machine is used to detect plastic money, the enormous amount of static electricity damages the components. However, BC 55 uses special conductive material to export the static electricity during the counting process for a hassle-free process. Also, static electricity easily overlaps the plastic coins and leads to re-sheeting. The BC 55 counting machine uses a CIS infrared transmission image to make re-sheeting identification which is 99.7% accurate.

Counterfeit money can be detected in two ways. One way is by using hands and eyes to analyze the currency and detect its legitimacy. Some of the factors that you can use to detect money using your hands and eyes are:

  • Watermarks
  • Serial numbers
  • Blurry borders
  • Red and blue threads
  • Ultraviolet glow
  • Raised printing
  • Security thread

Usually, fake money is sourced from different parts of the world. Tracing the exact source of fake money can be impossible at times. From drug cartels to terrorist groups, the fake money is printed at isolated places and distributed globally.
