Due to our current economical status, counterfeiting once again is on the rise. Another reason for this is the ease and speed with which large quantities of counterfeit currency can be produced using modern photographic and printing equipment. There is over sixty four million dollars in counterfeit currency floating throughout the United States today, with almost forty five million dollars of that being "Supernotes" from North Korea.
Are you currently using a counterfeit detection pen? Well, these pens perform a PH test and are not as effective considering todays advanced technology. Since bills can be coated with an easily obtainable spray starch, it prevents those markers from identifying counterfeit bills. Also, 25% of the counterfeit currencies in America today were once five dollar bills, which were then bleached and altered in order to create a more valuable denomination. These bills subsequently will be identified as authentic when marked with the pen since they are in fact already printed upon American currency.
Today, many businesses have opt-in to purchasing an ultraviolet counterfeit detector at every point of sale location, which enables the user to spot a fake bill quickly and efficiently.
Your purchase of an ultraviolet counterfeit detection unit (CSS-1 or CSS-2) from Credible Security Solutions will include a UV coated users guide that acts as a quick reminder as well as a deterrent from possible fake bill passers. In addition, a licensed private investigator will conduct an on-site training class to educate your team on the latest counterfeit scams and how to use the equipment effectively.
The CSS-1 and CSS-2 can be used for detecting fraudulent banknotes, credit cards, checks, money orders and more. If you are the owner/manager of a check cashing store, nightclub/bar/restaurant, retailer or any other type of business that accepts cash, checks, credit cards or identification, then the CSS-1
is a must! No business is too small or too large. We can supply any amount of units needed, so wholesale rates are available.
