Passing around counterfeit money

If counterfeit money is somehow in your possession, you may not be charged with a crime. For instance, if the forgery is so obvious that an average person could detect it, you may face legal trouble. However, if the bill look genuine and forgery could not be detected, you may not be charged with a crime. Even though you won’t be charged with a crime, you can also not expect to be given back the amount of money you once had.
