I remember reading stories more than a decade ago about how cheap, but high quality, scanners and printers were making it easier than ever for anyone to create counterfeit money. So, it's not clear at all why USA Today suddenly thinks it's newsworthy that the same thing is true today. Nothing has really changed. In fact, buried in the article (between anecdotes concerning what a large and growing problem this is) is the stat that "the amount of fake cash produced, seized and passed has remained stable in recent years." So, basically, nothing at all has changed? Yet, despite that, the rest of the story makes it sound like this is a rapidly growing problem, citing a few anecdotes to suggest that this has taken off recently due to technology that has been cheap and available for years.
