The Counterfiet Syndicate is a Florida-based criminal organization. The Syndicate is devoted primarily to counterfeiting currency (hence the name). It makes a brief appearance in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City during the last mission of the two Print Works missions. An agent of the Syndicate is bringing in new plates. Tommy Vercetti, who was convinced by Ernest Kelly to enter into counterfeiting, steals the plates from the agent and returns to the Print Works and begins his counterfeiting operations. It is unknown why the [presumed]Counterfeit Syndicate members are all women.
