Counterfeit Money Detector – new gizmo promises to stop thief and get you rich


This Chinese Counterfeit Money Detector goes some way beyond your normal version and offers not only UV light scanning but also magnetic detection which checks the note for the thin metal wire that should be buried in there somewhere. Unless you’re in poor old Zimbabwe of course, where you simply don’t have time to check the currency before it’s lost another 20% in value.

 This very portable and useful system uses 2 different technologies in order to detect the counterfeit bills. 1. The first one is ultraviolet radiation detection, at by pushing the corresponding button, one can see whether the security elements usually printed with UV sensible ink are there or not, and therefore spot fake bills immediately. 2. The second technology is magnetic detection, which checks for the presence of metallic security elements (generally a thin metallic wire) or of magnetic ink, usually used for the numeric parts, the device emitting a loud buzz when said elements are discovered.

  • Does a Chinese counterfeit money detector sound like a contradiction in terms to anyone else?
