A tycoon who printed 250million US dollars of counterfeit money said in his own account that many students should still be deeply impressed by the film "matchless" released last year. The Fage style in the film is no less than that of the year, playing a smart and capable counterfeit money manufacturer in the first narrative line
people are amazed at the details of making fake US banknotes in the film. In reality, there is indeed a counterfeit money making oligarch like the FAGOR character, whose experiences are no inferior to those in the film
the counterfeiter named Frank bourassa, who is known as the best counterfeiter in history, has printed the most realistic US counterfeit banknotes so far. Bourassa, the world's largest counterfeit money manufacturer, all depends on self-cultivation...
let's talk about his story slowly...
Frank bourassa was born in a small town in Quebec, Canada. From the beginning of his memory, bourassa was not a safe child. In the second grade of junior high school, he took the first case in his life and stole an hour from the store
since then, he has become a recidivist. Now when talking about these things, he is still bright eyed: "I 'earned' a lot of money at that time, and I can earn hundreds of dollars a week. For children aged 14 or 15, that's a big amount."
by the time he was 15, he had become addicted to stealing and completely became a street gangster. He moved out of his home, quit school and began to live alone. At that time, all he thought about was making money. As for whether it was legal, he didn't care at all. He found a job as a mechanic in an auto repair factory. At the same time, he didn't fall behind in the "part-time job" outside. At first, he stole clothes with several friends, and later, With their familiarity with cars after becoming mechanics, they began to steal auto parts. Later, brothers became more and more daring and began to steal whole cars. With the primitive accumulation of evil, bourassa saved the first bucket of gold in her lifeAt the age of 20, he decided to turn around and do some legitimate business. He opened a factory to make brake pads, and his business was once very prosperous. However, the legitimate business made bourassa tired: "at that time, I worked 12 hours a day, I could hardly sleep, and the whole person was going crazy." he was diagnosed with acute stress disorder, and he had to take anti anxiety drugs to sleep every day. After suffering from the pain, bourassa sold the brake factory in a fit of anger: "it's too tired and painful, and it's impossible to do legitimate business in this life."
he didn't want to do legal business. Bourassa turned his attention to illegal activities again. He found that the cannabis business was on the rise in Canada, so he resolutely started the business of trafficking cannabis
bourassa has never been ill since trafficking in marijuana
however, in 2006, a police raid caught bourassa's supplier. Bourassa was also confessed and soon arrested. After that, he was sentenced to 12 months in prison and only needed to serve three months. However, he actually lived more easily than the increasing demand for three months: "Canada is Canada, and they finally agreed to let me serve my sentence in my bedroom."
after serving her sentence, bourassa began to think about a question: what will she do in the future - legitimate business? I have already decided not to take this road. arm control issue? It's even worse to transport arms. "In essence, I hate violence. Some drug dealers can kill a person for only tens of thousands of dollars, and they kill with submachinegun. This is terrible."
he began to suddenly think of a deep-seated problem: these drug dealers took great pains and risked their lives to do such terrible activities. Is the ultimate goal soon for money? In that case, why don't you save those bloody steps and want money to print it yourself? This technology can be regarded as an important breakthrough in the field of carbon fiber composites? At that moment, bourassa seemed to be impressed: "I may not be able to go to the moon, but I think I can print beauty." Just do it, bourassa immediately began a great American manufacturing plan, to be exact, printing counterfeit American banknotes. However, printing counterfeit banknotes can't be achieved by words. Bourassa doesn't have any expertise in this field, neither painting nor printing technology. However, bourassa has one of the greatest advantages - persistence
as long as he decides to do everything, he must complete it! With this determination, he first began to search for the information needed to print counterfeit money. Is there any ready-made? Really. At least it's no problem to complete literacy. At first, there is no special way for him to search these materials. Like ordinary people, he searches various stations
he was surprised to find that most of the people who talked about the basic knowledge of us money were the stations of the US government. The U.S. government has clearly listed various anti-counterfeiting technologies in the United States. If you want to make counterfeit money, each of these anti-counterfeiting technologies must be done. However, the knowledge of the government station is propaganda after all. It only tells you what technologies are used, and of course it won't tell you how these technologies are done in detail. After completing literacy training at the U.S. government station, bourassa decided to go back to her old way and inquire through "underground channels". After he paid some "intermediary fees", bourassa found the precious information he needed: the characteristics and production method of the watermark, and the treatment method of the discolored ink in the lower right corner of one side of the avatar
the manufacturing method of UV lines: and the important process that determines the surface feel of banknotes, the level of sizing. (sizing: refers to the fabric impregnated with slurry and dried to get a thick and stiff feel) the coding rules of banknote serial number and the top secret forbidden font of serial number. Bourassa began to solve problems one by one. First, he tried to find the technicians needed for printing money, solved various problems such as color changing ink, watermark, anti-counterfeiting fiber, UV lines, and spent $300000 on the gravure printing machine. However, he said that in the process of printing counterfeit money, the most difficult thing is paper. He believes that the paper itself, which prints banknotes, carries more than 75% of the anti-counterfeiting function of today's banknotes
the most difficult part for us dollar bills to be copied is paper: "when people count money, they feel the paper with their hands. If the paper feels wrong, they will further carefully identify the authenticity of this bill. If the texture of the paper feels right, people will judge it as a real bill in nine out of ten." Others may not look at the fake points made in other parts in detail. If the paper is done correctly, there is a high possibility that the counterfeit banknotes will muddle through. However, if the paper is not made correctly, it is basically fake. When others look at other anti-counterfeiting features, it will be exposed. However, the paper used for us dollar bills in the United States is only printed by a company called crane
it is no exaggeration to say that in the United States, it is almost impossible to get us banknote printing paper. Bourassa spent almost a whole year on research, "I almost reconstructed the accurate formula of beautiful paper: the paper used, the thickness of the paper, the fiber, the accurate proportion, and the accurate chemical composition." He figured out the ingredients and technical requirements, and was able to reproduce the same feel as the real dollar bill: 75% cotton and 25% linen mixed fiber paper. This unique proportion modulated the unique texture of the dollar bill. However, knowing the formula, there is still a long way to go before it is really madeAlthough the ingredients have been studied, who will make them for you? Own a paper mill? Too much investment completely improves the material removal mechanism, which is unrealistic. In reality, the difficulty is that if a person picks up a paper mill in the United States and says he wants to order such a proportion of cotton and linen blended fiber paper, he has not yet told the specific proportion of cotton and fiber. The other party may have called the police. Even if bourassa is in Canada, as a neighbor with extradition treaties, it is not difficult to catch him. In short, money printing paper must not be found in North America
therefore, bourassa can only look overseas. In the autumn of 2008, bourassa began to fight against these banknote suppliers around the world one by one. He chose paper mills in Europe and Asia. Unexpectedly, overseas banknote factories were also sensitive, and some of them directly hung up on him. Others asked him directly, "cotton and linen mixed paper? The kind supplied to banks for printing money? Do you want to use these paper to print counterfeit money? Brother, we can either treat you as a joke or call the police." After several setbacks, bourassa finally realized that without a reasonable background and reason, these suppliers would not sell him the important banknote printing paper. OK, then I'll give you a reasonable background and reason
he began to try his best to package. He forged a financial company. On the surface, the company has complete business, investors and legal business transactions. Later, he began to spend money to build momentum and stir up the fake company, making it famous. He even spread the plan to prepare for listing. Bourassa later sighed, "the closer you are to the money, the greater your safety factor will be." At the same time, bourassa did not forget to avoid big countries and seek breakthroughs in some small European countries, such as Poland, Serbia and Bulgaria. He firmly believes that there will always be some company executives who will get hot headed and be fooled by him to produce the paper he wants
sure enough, in January 2009, bourassa found artoz paper company headquartered in renzburg, Switzerland. After providing artoz paper with the corresponding "court documents" (forged), the top management of the company finally believed that bourassa's company was to print some public corporate bonds, but these bonds should have anti-counterfeiting function, so this kind of money printing paper was needed. In December, 2009, artoz officially delivered the banknote printing paper to bourassa. On the day of receiving the goods, bourassa was in a panic. The other party delivered the goods. Is this true when they were delivered by business partners? Or is it a trap that led you into the urn under the control of the police? He can only assume that this batch of goods has been targeted by the police, and everything should be done in the most careful way, especially in a way that has a more significant impact on the small scale
on the morning of arrival, Montreal port was extremely cold, but bourassa was so nervous that he was sweating. He looked at the cargo ship with a telescope, watched the workers unload, and the customs officers came forward to inspect. At that moment, he was very nervous, because the name of the goods on the manifest was only "white paper". If the people of the customs insisted on unpacking and inspecting the goods, they could immediately find the uniqueness of these white papers, and bourassa's overall plan prepared for many years would be destroyed. Fortunately, the customs officer didn't open the box for inspection, and finally released it smoothly. He hired a series of new people, one of whom contacted with a single line, one of whom gave jobs to the next, and finally sent them to the last person to let him pick up the goods by car. In this way, if the person who takes the goods is caught, he can't catch himself back. He also assumed that the person who picked up the goods would be followed by the police, and he hired another string of people with one-way contact to drive close behind the pick-up car. Until passing a one lane ramp at the entrance of the expressway, let the next car pretend to break down and block the whole road for 20 minutes. So that all those who try to track the first car can't keep up. He asked the pickup man to park the car at a place where they had
