‘I Printed Money for the Mob': A Master Counterfeiter Tells His Story

Arthur Williams Jr. is a master counterfeiter. After he found a way to successfully replicate more than $10 million in what were thought to be “counterfeit-proof” $100 bills, he was considered by some to be the best in the world. But it all came crashing down when Williams was sentenced to prison for 105 months — for what he admits was just a fraction of his criminal work. (His son later joined him in the same penitentiary.) Today, seven years after being released, Williams is making a name for himself in Hollywood as an artist. And he says he doesn’t regret a thing. NBCLX Cody Broadway shares his story.
