State & Federal Counterfeiting Laws
Trusted Criminal Defense Attorney in Long Island
Counterfeiting is a crime that affects many businesses across states and nations. As such, in addition to existing New York state penalties, this crime is also strictly prosecuted by the federal government.
Money is not the only type of currency that is subject to counterfeiting laws. Other types of illegal counterfeiting prohibited under federal law include:
- Federal court documents
- Postage stamps and meters from the United States Postal Service
- Documents designed to deceive and defraud the federal government, including but not limited to bonds, proposals, public records, contracts, bids, and affidavits
- Federal agency seals
- Documents from credit unions, lending agencies, land banks, the FDIC, and other lending agencies
Traditionally, counterfeiting refers to replicating currency and other documents. It can also mean replicating physical products such as trademarked clothing, designer purses, jewelry, credit cards, and computer software.
This crime is heavily penalized and carries serious consequences, including long prison sentences and extremely steep fines.
