Secret service drying up counterfeiting By ROBERT STEWART Staff Wrlttr Things will be getting tougher for counterfeiters as the United States adds new features to currency that will complicate duplication, says Charles IL Dyer, Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge of the U.S. Secret Service, San Antonio I icld Office. ‘These notes went through a lot of RAD (research and development),*’ Dyer said. “We wanted lo produce currency that counterfeiters couldn’t reproduce.” The new design includes a polyester strip ihat runs vertically across the hill about three inches from the left side. The strip says “USA IOO" on the 1990 scries SKX) bill which arc the first bills to use the new markings. The strip cannot be removed and is designed to lot! some ol the best counterfeiters in Columbian drug cartels who bleach one dollar bills and print SIOO’s on them. I tie atrip can be seen when the bill is held in from of u light source. “The mum thing missing for counterfeiters is the paper — which ii not even paper," he said. “It is actually fabric, with no worn! pulp. There are also little, thin blue urn! red ra>on tim adv iii Ute paper.” Dyer said that counterfeit feels different and “situps" different than genuine currency. The pa(>er for genuine currency is mode at a closely guarded factory in Dalton, Mass. The other new feature to foil counterfeiters is a micro-printing Charles H. Dyer, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the U S Secret Service. San Antonio FiekJ Office, displays a phony bill (Photo.by Robed Stewart) strip dial borders lite puritan on the new bills. A sharp eye can read "’Die United States of America" printed continually around the bolder. "This micro-printing ll impossible to camera and impossible for a counter letter to etch into a printing plate," Dyer said "The process awd by the government is confidential." The “Triangular Check” tor counterfeit involves checking the quality of the paper, cheeking the quality of reproduction on the Treasury Department seal and the portrait. Hie seal is hard to reproduce due to the overlay of black ink on green and the crisp saw-tooth edges. The portrait has a fishnet background and looks lifelike on a genuine bill, Dyer said.Another thing to check is that the letter in the Federal Reserve seal matches the first letter of the serial number. “There ate oilier things on this bill that I can't tell you about,” he said. “They are classified.” Dyer added that counterfeiters generally don’t spend much time on the backs of bills so they end up looking bad pictorially. “If you think you have a counterfeit bill, don’t give it back," Dyer said. “And don’t pass it around to show to your co-workers because fingerprint* can be deice led on a bill for live years,” The recipient of a toke bill should gel a description of the person "passing” it a* welt av their vehicle if possible, We have the highest prosecution rate of any (government or police agency) in the nation at 98.9 percent conviction," he said. The small percentage of non-convictions is due to pre-arranged pica bargain agreements, he said The penalty is 15 years in prison for possession of one bill and another 15 years for passing, he said Dyer added that a person who performs an “innocent pass” will not be prosecutedSigns of a shoplifter By ROBERT STEWART Stafl Writer A public misperception of what shoplifters look like makes it easter for them to steal, according to Mike Grist, director of the Sate City Commission “A shoplifter can be anyNniy at all, male or female, usually 30-50 years old and very welldressed,” he said. “They’re usually very welldressed be call se they steal good clothes.” Grist said merchants should prosecute shoplifters to the fullest extent of the law when they catch them. "It’s totally up to you ai that point in time,” he said. “If you let them go — guess what — they're going to tell all their friends md buddies and they'll ail he buck again.” Grist spoke to merchants at on anti-a i me seminar at Honors Hall on Tuesday.Good Day Partly cloudy and windy conditions arc in die forecast again today as die temper*lure heads lo a high around 65.
