Well, they DO warn you:
  • Avoid places where UV light detectors are used
  • Don’t make large-volume purchases
  • Don’t become a couch potato
An example, Australia:
  • Polymer Substrate: It was the latest introduction in the Australian banking landscape to avoid counterfeiting, but not for too long. We got hold of this material, showcasing a distinctive feel that gets restored to the original shape even if you crush it your palm.
  • Intaglio printing with raised ink
  • Holograms and Watermarks
  • UV sensitive features
  • Micro-lettering
I would guess the Secret Service might want these web sites to not exist....

I'm sorry, but how can this company stay in existence? It must be a front for the Secret Service or some international institution that traps people trying to buy counterfeit money.

I sure hope so.  I have called the Secret Service for a US counterfeit case before, but the contact number at this web site is the UK.

I was interested in buying one, but their intention is very clear. Not for collectors or "fun" but to break the law.

Please correct me if wrong...  Their intent is to defraud, which is illegal.  They are manufacturing counterfeit US currency, then selling it for profit. 
It's not illegal to purchase and possess, as long as there is no fraudulent intent.  From this site (wherever it originates), a person would be spending a minimum of $300  to simply possess counterfeit currency.  Possession is not the crime, fraudulent intent is.

I think the track record in court of people buying counterfeit currency and then claiming it was not their “intent” to pass it as genuine is rather poor.

This website explicitly states they are selling it to you so that you can pass it - so that is another strike against the buyer.  But, ultimately, because the manufacturers intend them to be passed, by law they are forfeit to the treasury, and one’s knowing failure to turn them over will be accepted as proof of intent to pass them.


Just my humble opinion from googling the law ....

RagPicker, is clear at the website the intent they have selling the counterfeit currency. They never mention fantasy, education, collectible, or any other thing but pass it as a good one. The intention is clear.

Buy Counterfeit Money

Order counterfeit money when financial hardships stress you out

It would be hard to argue you didn't mean to pass it.

But the site is so bad, and so obvious, that I think what they really do is get you to pay in bitcoin and then never send you anything - or it is just a bad joke ... hard to believe it is serious ... but you never know
