Fraudster or token female? Either (not hard!) (13)
I believe the answer is:
'fraudster' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.
'token female? either not hard' is the wordplay.
'token' becomes 'counter' (counter can mean a token or chip).
'female?' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).
'not' suggests deleting specific letters.
'hard' becomes 'h' (abbreviation used in pencil classifications).
'either' with 'h' taken away is 'eiter'.
'or' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for counterfeiter that I've seen before include "Forger" , "person making money illegally" .)
