These days, counterfeiters must find it difficult to steal money. Modern technology has made it impossible to pass off fake money as real. Tony Jerome Thorbert Jr., a 20-year-old Florida counterfeiter, found himself in a situation so dire that he began selling fake dollars on Craigslist.

Let’s chat to Florida Today about how this worked out for him.

Crimeline received a tip from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in February that a man claimed to be selling counterfeit currency online through an ad on Craigslist. The headline was “Legitimate counterfeit “

Three undercover purchases were made by the Sheriff’s Office of Economic Crimes, and Thorbert was taken into custody during the fourth.

Deputies with a search warrant entered Torbert’s home and seize a printer, a computer, and counterfeit currency.

You may have heard that when someone is actively and openly engaging with egregious or criminal behavior, they can be described as “they are advertising” it. You will almost certainly be caught advertising your illegal or egregious behavior. You almost certain to be caught.
