Peru the global leader in dollar counterfeiting

FILE - In this Aug. 17, 2012 file photo, a police officer inspects an alleged counterfeit $100 U.S. dollar note during a media presentation in Lima, Peru. With its meticulous criminal craftsmen, cheap labor and, by some accounts, less effective law enforcement, Peru has in the past two years overtaken Colombia as the No. 1 source of counterfeit U.S. dollars, says the U.S. Secret Service, protector of the world’s most widely-traded currency.
