Counterfeit Money Laws

Counterfeiting presents a potential danger to economies and financial losses to consumers. With counterfeiting scams becoming more rampant, it is important to be aware of counterfeit money and the consequences of possessing it with or without knowledge, as well as the laws pertaining to counterfeit money and reporting counterfeit money. Lawyers on JustAnswer can provide answers to your queries or concerns about counterfeit money. Given below are some of the frequently asked questions on counterfeit money with answers from JustAnswer Experts.

Are There Any Counterfeit Money Laws?

Different States have different laws regarding counterfeit money. The counterfeiting of money is attacked severely by governments. Learn more about Counterfeit Money Laws by talking to Lawyers on JustAnswer.

Passing a Counterfeit Money Order

This is a common fraud. If a bank is provided with a money order to be cashed and the money order is found to be counterfeit, the bank may be considered the actual victim of the crime, while the citizen may be viewed as the perpetrator for passing the counterfeit money order. The individual passing the check, not the bank, is responsible for verifying the authenticity.

If you or anyone you know has unknowingly passed counterfeit money orders, you can ask a Criminal Lawyer on JustAnswer to find out the best course of action.

Statute of Limitations on Counterfeit Money Making

Different states have different criminal procedures with regards to counterfeit money. In some states, criminal procedures will allow a 10 year period to prosecute. Also, such an act can be prosecuted under the US Code in Federal Court with an 8 year statute of limitation.

Unknowingly Cashing a Counterfeit Check

If you realize that you have unwittingly cashed a counterfeit check at a bank, the first thing you should do is return the proceeds from the check to the institution that cashed the check because they will hold you accountable for the check by debiting your account. The bank should be able to determine from the routing number on the check where the check came from and coordinate with the Attorney General's office to offer information to assist in prosecution.

What is Counterfeit Conspiracy?

Any conspiracy is a plan between two or more people to commit an illegal act. Any action "in furtherance" of that plan is considered to be carrying out the conspiracy. So, if two or more people plan to counterfeit money, and any one of them actually does anything towards that goal, they can all be charged with conspiracy to commit counterfeiting.

Reporting Counterfeit Money

Can you turn in a person with criminal charges on counterfeiting money? One must remember that there is nothing unlawful about learning that someone you know was involved in a past crime and not reporting that knowledge voluntarily. It is not a crime to threaten to or to turn a person in on criminal charges. One can and must inform the police, and it is well within your legal rights to do so.

Know all about Counterfeit Money detection, reporting counterfeit money and Counterfeit money laws in your State. Ask a Lawyer on JustAnswer with verified credentials in Criminal Law. They will address your queries quickly, affordably and to your satisfaction.

  • Two of my friends and I were running and doing flips on grassy

    Two of my friends and I were running and doing flips on grassy hills. It was about midnight on a Friday/Saturday morning. We were right outside of a business and there were about four men outside of the building. were were only there for about five minutes when we left but as we were pulling out we realized one of my friends had lost his key. So we went back and parked in the front of the parking lot near the hills where we began searching for the key. The men at the front of the building were yelling things but we couldn't understand them as they were about 80 yards away. We continued searching for the key when a Police officer showed up he went over to the Men and then came back to us. We told him what we had been doing and at this time three other police showed up. One of the police men came up to us and told us the men had said we were doing donuts and climbing in trees and that the driver was getting a ticket very adamantly. We tried to tell our side of the story but, he wouldn't listen and said there were four adults that said differently. My friends and I are all 18 so we didn't see how we weren't adults either. anyways, the officer told us if we kept talking us we were all getting arrested. So we didn't say anything. One officer helped us look for the key but, they said once the original officer was done writing the ticket we had to leave. The officer wrote the ticket and we all got warnings for trespassing and as the driver I got a ticket for doing donuts. We had to leave but in the morning we came back and asked the front desk if we could look for the key they said we could but just as the security guard came out to tell us we had to come back later we found the key. I received a ticket for doing donuts which I didn't do. Is there anyway I can get this dropped the police have no proof except for the word of those guys who lied and said we were doing donuts. What do i do about the ticket? I have a court case for it that I was just going to tell the judge what happened and see what he does.
