    Detection :
    Our forged note detectors are designed to offer users a simple, quick and easy way to check for counterfeit and forged documents banknotes and credit cards. The Document/Banknote or Credit card issuing authorities are the only people who can 100% confirm if a Document/Banknote or Credit card is genuine or not. Some police laboratories can provide an intermediate service, but it is advisable to refer the document or banknote to the issuing authority.

    Banknotes :
    FORGED NOTE DETECTORS: using a U.V. (ultra violet) and white light together is an aid to prevention and to stem the increasing number of forgeries. Users of the U.V. Forged Note Detectors must check for the continuous metallic/plastic strip, watermark, the feel of the paper and the amount of U.V. reflection should be checked.

    1. U.V. LIGHT: A genuine bank note should not fluoresce right across the banknote. Many banknotes have fluorescent marking in the note. When they are held under the U.V. light the marking will appear (only the design should fluoresce when passed under the U.V. light).

    2. FEEL THE PAPER: Some forgers have soaked the forged notes in U.V. protection fluids such as sun tan lotion thus supposedly blocking out the U.V. light. However, sun tan lotion and such like are not 100% U.V. proof. The banknote will still fluoresce slightly as well as feel greasy to the touch and look very fragile. If you try to block the U.V. you also block the watermark.

    3. WATERMARKS: Many counterfeit watermarks are bleached into the paper. A U.V. light will not fluoresce a genuine watermark, but will fluoresce a bleached watermark. Only a white light will display the watermark.

    4. METAL AND PLASTIC STRIPS: Under a white light, a continuous metal strip can be seen. A genuine banknote will reveal a continuous strip as it is sandwiched in the genuine banknote. With a forgery you can usually see a dashed line where it is painted on the outside of the note. If a magnifying lens is used, in many currencies the value of the note is printed onto the strip.

    5. EUROS: In addition to the above security, there is micro printing that can only be seen under 10 x magnification.

    6. CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS: (fluorescent design) MASTER CARD has ‘M’ ‘C’. AMERICAN EXPRESS has ‘AMEX’. VISA has the Eagle design. SWITCH has the switch logo. VISA DELTA has the Eagle design. Check the security number printed in black on the back of the card.

    7. DOCUMENTS: Newer Driving Licences/I.D. Cards/Passports have fluorescent designs on them.

    8. BANK CHEQUES: All of the major banks now print fluorescent designs into their cheques.

    9. EURO NOTES: All of the new Euro notes have fluorescent markings on the back of them.

    Forged Note Detectors are only a front line aid to he prevention of forged and counterfeit banknotes, documents, credit cards and cheques being passed as genuine.
