Chemical detection is one of the most simple ways to determine whether a bill is real or not. Color copiers and home computer scanners are becoming more easily available and very easy to use, making everyone a potential counterfeiter. The technology in these office products is making it almost too simple to create real-looking currency. Even the latest currency redesigns from Washington have been easily recreated by your everyday computer whiz. One thing they cannot recreate or imitate is the chemical makeup of the paper they print their fake bills on.

With chemical detection, you do not need to have the eyesight of an owl or the scrutiny of a detective. Products on the market are made to react with the currency paper. If a bill is real, you will see a gold mark. If it is fake, you will see a black mark. What could be easier than that?

Chemical Detection Is a Smart Choice

Using products that utilize chemical detection methods is as easy as drawing a line. Counterfeit chemical detectors react with the chemical makeup of the currency, and you will get an instant answer whether that 20 dollar bill in your hand was made at the US mint or on someone's computer.

Another benefit to using chemical detection methods is that you do not need to spend endless hours training someone on how to spot fake bills. You simply have to spend a minute or two explaining how to use the counterfeit detecting marker. Most times, these people will already know how to use a marker so it will take virtually no time at all!
