Description

Former Secret Service Agent Jonathan Wackrow explains how the Service keeps counterfeit currency out of circulation. The Secret Service was installed to combat counterfeit money during the Civil War, and the Service still to this day works tirelessly to suppress counterfeits. Counterfeiting has been a tactic used to try to destabilize the US economy for years, and the Secret Service employs a variety of techniques to detect fraudulent bills. Jonathan goes through some publicly available techniques that they, and anyone else, can use to figure out if a bill is real or fake.

Wackrow served in the Presidential Protection Division in Washington, DC, and managed numerous high-level security operations in the U.S. and abroad.
