Said Imad book (35)-year-old shop owner in the banking district secretary second he found counterfeit currency from various denominations through receiving some cash, and each imitator diligently but can only recognizable by a counterfeit currency detector.
The book said, because of the large number of counterfeit currency, including the (dollar) has become a currency detector (multiplied) key when shop owners banking.
Noting that the first victim of counterfeit currency trading is simple citizen of the difficulty of knowing fraud, while ATM or competent person per experience reveals the process of financial manipulation and fraud easily and can not be exposed to damage, but in some special cases.
He pointed a book to be more currency is rigged are a class of twenty-five thousand dinars, and ten thousand dinars, either category five thousand dinars Few forgery because it's currency is small, these currencies Iraqi counterfeit mostly come from some neighboring countries as it enters into the country through smuggling, some diligently forged high, while others look like the remnants of dyes and printing fees and ripple inaccuracies in a secret tape.
As the U.S. dollar despite the many attempts to forgery, but he can not be easily imitated, and in case of doubt in any paper put in a fraud detector to make sure of their safety.
Loss of confidence
Hussein said Faisal (37) years owner of a shop selling food in New Baghdad: The phenomenon of counterfeiting Iraqi currency spread in the last period and generated a kind of mistrust between the seller and the buyer, as can not deal with any class unless rethink and look closely at the line underground and paint horse in where, in case of doubt, we refrain from selling, this process is cumbersome and embarrassing, and must for security authorities to move towards it and punish Vaaliha strongest sanctions and refer them to eliminate because of their damage on the Iraqi economy, and said: I had to buy a detector currency so as not to fall victim of fraud, and the best deal dollar at the expense of the dinar, despite the instability of the exchange rate, and there is the other side we suffer a torn currency and banks not to accept the rotation, especially the twenty-five-thousand dinars.

Adding: in each time period has to be changes and the development of the advantages and blades in the Iraqi currency is difficult to imitate, and to rely on high-quality paper and colors, printing and standards adopted in the currencies of the world, although they did not visit so far degree complete, and existing groups forged without any precise specifications, include phosphoric line and mark the horse's head and the type of paper and printing minute.
And Abdul-Aziz al-Hassoun Executive Director of the Association of Iraqi private banks in Iraq, said the central bank issued special instructions on coins counterfeit, under these instructions banks book counterfeit currency and Tachireha stamp shows it currency counterfeit, and then takes Officer sufficient information about the person who came currency counterfeit to the bank and enclosed with the groups that send cash to the Iraqi Central Bank to take the necessary measures.
