counterfeit notes

Each day I hear stories of bundles of forged currency notes being confiscated. My question why take the pain. If you really want to make money, then don’t print currency notes, instead print Gift Coupons, print Sodexho.


: Unlike most currency notes, these coupons have little or no hidden security measures. Printing them is rather simple, and merchants are virtually unaware of how to differentiate real from fake. Some high end gift coupons do have a hologram, but who looks at it. An cashier is too busy to even give it a second look.

Most interesting aspect is that the issuing company (esp. Sodexho) cannot deny reimbursement a merchant who hands them a fake coupon. If a merchant feels he is duped, he will stop accepting these coupons. This might start a spiraling effect of the whole city not accepting Sodexho. To prevent bad name, Sodexho will continue to accept the forged coupons and bear the losses.

You donot believe me, look at Telgi case. Government know that a large percentage of the land documents are on forged Stamp Paper, yet the Supreme Court has ordered the government to honor such agreements.
