Counterfeiting is a criminal offense which was long associated with legal tender alone. Many years ago, counterfeiting was an offense punishable by death. Today, counterfeiting may refer to creating false money as well as other important documents. It may also include counterfeiting goods such as designer purses, watches or jewelry. Counterfeiting is illegal and may be punished under Florida State Law or Federal Law.
