Be On The Lookout For Fake Money

Posted: Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Over the past few months the county has experienced an increase in cases involving counterfeit bills, specifically 100.00 dollar bills.

If You Receive a Counterfeit
• Do not return it to the passer.
• Delay the passer if possible.
• Observe the passer's description, as well as that of any companions, and the license plate numbers of any vehicles used.
• Contact your local police department or United States Secret Service field office. These numbers can be found on the inside front page of your local telephone directory.
• Write your initials and the date in the white border areas of the suspect note.
• Limit the handling of the note. Carefully place it in a protective covering, such as an envelope.
• Surrender the note or coin only to a properly identified police officer or a U.S. Secret Service special agent.
