Hi! Deepak,
Not sure what you meant by counterfeit stamps, if they are the imitations and meant to cheat consumers or collectors, I think this is not right both morally and in the eyes of the law. Yes, I think there are fake stamps exists but not sure if there are real collectors for them.

You may be interested to know about "cinderella stamp' which is similar to postage stamps in appearance but not real stamps for postage usage. But I don't think these are considered as counterfeit or fake. You can read more about it here:

A search of cederella stamp in google will turn up lots of further links for details.

I hope the above helps.
