The modern era of counterfeit money production has enabled anyone with a home computer, a scanner and a high-quality color printer to open-up-shop and become a counterfeiter. Easy access to counterfeit-capable technology makes loss prevention and counterfeit bill detection increasingly important for small and large retailers alike.
The bottom line is: counterfeiting can affect your company's bottom line. Your business will likely incur a loss in time, productivity and resources in addition to the forged face value of the worthless counterfeit. The 2014 Lexis-Nexis True Cost of Fraud survey, conducted annually, suggests that the “soft costs” associated with fraud typically equals more than 3-times the face value of the fraud itself.
