In 3 Months $1.6M in Counterfeit Currency Seized by Chicago CBP
Securing America's Borders
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Chicago’s International Mail Facility (IMF) have been counting a lot of money, counterfeit money, in different denominations that have been seized from parcels coming into the U.S. In the past three months, officers have seized more than 100 shipments of counterfeit currency totaling more than $1.64 million.
At the end of February, CBP officers seized 24 shipments containing fake silver dollars, a collectible item among many enthusiasts. Additionally, during these three months CBP seized over $95,000 Euros, equal to over $112,000. Except for a few of the shipment, all these items were arriving from China destined for places all over the U.S., to include some cities within Illinois.
I suppose the Chinese gummint know nothing about this
