These days, counterfeiters find it difficult to steal money. Modern technology has made it impossible to pass on fake money as real. Tony Jerome Thurbert Jr., a 20-year-old forger in Florida, found himself in such a difficult situation that he started selling fake dollars on Craigslist.
Let’s talk to Florida today about how that worked for him.
Crimeline received advice from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in February that a man claimed to be selling counterfeit coins online through an advertisement on Craigslist. The title was “Forgery”
Three secret purchases were made by the Economic Crimes Sheriff’s Office, and Thurbert was taken into custody during the fourth.
Representatives with a search warrant entered Torbert’s home and confiscated a printer, computer and counterfeit currency.
You may have heard that when someone actively and publicly engages in egregious or criminal behavior, it can be described as being “advertised.” You will almost certainly be caught publicizing your illegal or egregious behavior. You will almost certainly be caught.
