Federal criminal penalties can be a lot more harsh than state penalties and can include lengthy incarceration periods and financially burdensome fines, among other consequences. Counterfeiting is defined as the illegal copying of something with the intent to have others believe it is genuine rather than a copy. Whereas in the past, counterfeiting was related to currency, legal tender and other documents such as medical and legal documents, more common today is the unlawful duplication of items such as designer clothing, handbags, sunglasses, and other goods. In addition to the manufacturing of counterfeit items, it is also against the law to be in possession of forged or counterfeited documents and instruments or tools that are used to create counterfeit legal tender.
