Today's credit cards and cash have many security features. One of these features is the use of special inks and pigments that respond to ultraviolet light. Today's cash offers even more security features. You can use an ultraviolet light source to validate cash, credit cards, and many ID cards!

This amazing MINI-UV “black” light is perfect for spotting those fake credit cards, counterfeit currency, or any other item that has Ultra Violet (UV) properties. Simply push the button on the side of the light and a bright blue UV light is emitted.
Versatile hand-held unit allows user to change from regular light to UV light with the flick of a switch.
Use the "black" (UV) light to check the validity of new US $5, $10, $20, $50 & $100 bills and major credit cards.
To check a bill all one needs to do is mark each bill with our patented Jumbo pen. If the ink turns dark brown or black, that bill is suspect. These simple instructions are printed on each pen and the pen works on currency dated 1959 and later.
With a sharp eye, and some knowledge, you can detect many counterfeits visually. Click here for some pointers.
With so many of our mobile merchants using our products at trade shows, swap meets and trade fairs - the PRIME location for counterfeiters to try to pass off their phony cards, we felt it necessary to provide a line of defense. REMEMBER- if a counterfeiter succeeds in passing a phony card on you the first day of your event, ALL his friends will be there the next day! Credit cards are easily manufactured and duplicated. It is VERY easy to print, emboss, and encode a stolen number onto a blank card. Over 8 MILLION card numbers were recently stolen at ONE time!
Only the most expensive and hard-to-get card duplication systems have the ability to apply UV inks or films on a counterfeit card. Since these markings are invisible to the naked eye, many counterfeiters are unaware it exists at all!
