The Counterfeit Syndicate is a Florida-based criminal organization. The Syndicate is devoted primarily to counterfeiting currency. It makes a brief appearance in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City during the mission Hit the Courier. An agent of the Syndicate is bringing in new plates. Tommy Vercetti, who was convinced by Earnest Kelly to enter into counterfeiting, steals the plates from the agent and returns to the Print Works and begins his counterfeiting operations. All the Syndicate's members appear to be women, as all its members that Tommy fights during "Hit the Courier" are female. The Counterfeit Syndicate has the Vice City Triads provide them with plates of specific currency they want to counterfeit.
