Something to think about.
Except of course the miracles attributed to Our Lady of Lourdes, manifestations of the Spirit in the Toronto Blessing, the visions of Evan Roberts, Julian of Norwich and St. Hildegard of Bingen, modern day Prophecies in Tongues (in other churches than the LDS), Slaying in the Spirit etc....
Of course there's no guarantee that any (or all) of these aren't counterfeit, but the same could be said of Joseph Smith and his successors. As far as I "know or have ever seen", neither side trumps the other as far as claims of counterfeiting go.
