Counterfeiting and forgery crimes are very serious allegations. They usually arise when someone knowingly manufactures, distributes, transports, possesses with intent to distribute, or causes a forgery or counterfeiting of a good, service, or trademark, and those items are intended for resale.
The counterfeiting of currency, or money, is a federal offense, and one of the oldest crimes in the books. Back in the days of the American Revolution, this type of crime is punishable by death and considered an act of treason. Today, even if the death penalty and treason have been waived, counterfeiting and forgery convictions still result in severe punishments. These criminal investigations are headed by the Secret Service of the United States Government and they are taken very seriously. In some cases, international police agencies like INTERPOL might also involve themselves in the investigation and prosecution.
