Colorado Springs Counterfeiting Attorney
The Samuelson Law Firm Defends You From These Charges
Counterfeiting is the crime of manufacturing fake bank notes and coins,
as well as altering genuine money. Counterfeiting is considered a federal
crime, which means that it will be relentlessly pursued by federal prosecutors,
and under the federal sentencing guidelines, the punishments are strict
and severe. These charges are not to be taken lightly, and if you want
the possibility of avoiding being convicted, you need to speak with a
white collar crimes attorney immediately. Do not go into court unprepared; allow my staff
and me to devise a powerful and aggressive defense for your charges.
Counterfeiting Can Refer to Multiple Things
Counterfeiting has been a concern in the United States for over 200 years,
with the first counterfeiting laws enacted in 1790. These laws have adapted
to the changing of society, but the premise is always the same: it remains
illegal to fraudulently make American currency, own the tools and technology
to counterfeit, and to buy or receive counterfeited goods.
While counterfeiting can refer to money, there are other items that it
is illegal to develop:
- Documents issued by lending agencies
- U.S. postal stamps
- Seals of federal agencies
- Any document aimed at defrauding the United States
- Federal court documents
- Imports and customs collection duties
Counterfeiting is a crime that is seriously frowned upon by the federal
government. Because of the affect that counterfeit money can have on the
economy, such as leading to inflation, federal investigators and prosecutors
are vigilant when it comes to finding the producers of counterfeit money.
If you are convicted of counterfeiting, you can be facing up to 15 years
in prison, as well as many other penalties, such as probation, monetary
fines, and community service. Additionally, all of the equipment that
you used to manufacture the money will be confiscated, such as any computers,
scanners, printers, etc. If you want to retain your freedom, and your
costly possessions, you need an attorney who will fight for your innocence.
