What is a Federal Counterfeiting Crime?

A federal counterfeiting crime is when a person uses counterfeit money or tries to sell a counterfeit item by claiming that it is real when, in actuality, it is not a genuine product.

According to Federal Law 18 U.S.C § 471:

“Whoever, with intent to defraud, falsely makes, forges, counterfeits, or alters any obligation or other security of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”


We want to help you avoid the pain and aggravation of being convicted and found guilty of a federal counterfeiting crime. You could face harsh punishments, but an experienced federal criminal defense attorney can help get you the best possible resolution to your case.

There are a wide range of consequences for federal counterfeiting crimes. While there is no minimum mandatory sentence, the punishments for this crime are usually quite severe:

  • If it is your first federal counterfeiting offense, and you’re convicted, you could have to pay $2 million in fines or face up to 10 years in prison.
  • If this is not your first federal counterfeiting offense, you’re looking at up to 20 years in prison and a possible fine of up to $5 million.
  • A federal counterfeiting crime conviction will also stay on your record permanently.

Federal Counterfeiting Defense Strategies

  • Poor quality money: If the counterfeit goods or money in question are too poorly made to actually fool somebody into believing it is real, then we may be able to argue that it does not legally qualify as a counterfeit item.

  • Lack of intent: In order to be convicted of federal counterfeit trafficking, you must be found guilty of actually planning to sell the counterfeit products to someone by passing them off as real. We may be able to argue that you never intended to sell the items to someone else or that you never intended to represent them as ‘real’.

    In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
