New Call-to-action


What types of documents can the UV4 Authenticate?

The UV4 allows the user to authenticate the presence of invisible UV security features on many important documents, including: currency (US & foreign), credit cards, traveler checks, money orders, cashier’s checks, driver licenses, passports, social security cards, matricula consular, and numerous other items, such as vehicle title documents, birth certificates, casino chips and more.

What environments can the UV4 be used in?

Although we have done everything possible to maximize UV intensity of the UV4, FraudFighter recommends the UV4 to be used in dark or dimly-lit environments, such as bars or nightclubs or other envirfnments where there is not a great deal of “ambient” light.  It is ideal for checking ID documents at a bar or other restricted-age event, and can also be used by vendors accepting cash or credit card payments at such events.

What if my environment is brightly lit? 

If your work environment is brightly lit, then we recommend one of the more powerful FraudFighter models. If you have a countertop space available, then the UV-16 is the most powerful UV counterfeit detector available. 

What comes with the UV4 when I buy it?

You will receive training materials with full-color images to show you what to look for on different types of documents.

The specially designed UV tubes operate at lower current than typical A/C powered light fixtures produce.

Our outstanding support means you can always reach us during business hour, whether by phone or email, we are here and will respond to your questions right away.
