Wanted Poster UpdateBy Mark Chervenka
Wanted Poster Update
A second generation of fake FBI wanted posters is already in the market. The main difference between the first generation of fakes and old was that fakes did not have a fingerprint chart. The fingerprint chart is a major feature of originals.
Several fakes are now being offered that do include fingerprint charts. Retired FBI agent Bill Rosebaum has seen several of the new posters offered through the Ebay Internet auction site. Rosenbaum points out that all the new posters use the same fingerprint chart. He said the apparent source of the new chart is the book Story of the FBI published in 1965.
