Counterfeit money - how to distinguish a fake?
OR WATCH OUT FOR SCAMMERS!
There is a lot of money in the leisure industry, and where there is money, there are scammers. The escort industry is no exception. A popular area of escort fraud is the circulation of counterfeit money as a cash payment for services.
The important thing here is to distinguish a counterfeit from a genuine note in good time. Let's talk about foreign currency today and look at the signs of counterfeiting.
Smaller denominations of $1 to $10 are of no interest to crooks. The favorite of counterfeiters is the $100 note. They even wanted to withdraw it from circulation because of the frequency of counterfeiting.
So, how to understand that you have fake dollars in your hands:
- Foreign currency is printed on special heavy paper that is difficult to bend or tear without effort. If you get a note that is noticeably thinner than the others, that's a cause for concern.
- The front side of the US currency features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin. It's unlikely that crooks would paint another American president on the fakes, but it's worth checking.
- The "$100" sign changes colour from green to black at an angle
- Another way to check the authenticity of a banknote is to wet it down. Once dry, a genuine banknote will remain flat and without defects, which is not the case with counterfeits.
- If you enlighten the banknote, you can clearly see a protective strip with the inscription "USA 100."
- The printing on genuine banknotes is voluminous, while the fake ones are completely flat to the touch.
Counterfeit euro banknotes:
- Eurobanknots are made of special paper fiber and have a characteristic crunch.
- A dark strip with the inscription "EURO" is visible on the lumen.
- If you illuminate the European currency, you can clearly see the portrait of the Goddess of Europe on the banknotes.
