Uttering is when someone that didn’t actually create the false item sells it to make a profit. They may have bought a large quantity from the creator for the purpose of reselling it at a profit. This is still a serious offense.

Penalties for counterfeiting and uttering crimes vary greatly depending on the quantity involved and the amount of advertising or soliciting you put into making sales.
