• Sheriff's Office encourages

retailers to be aware

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office has received reports of a number of counterfeit bills showing up at area stores and banks in the past few months. Most recently the following bills were reported:

• Wells Fargo in Dodge Center reported a counterfeit $20 bill on December 30.

• On January 4, Wells Fargo again reported counterfeit bills; one - $100 bill, two $50 bills, three $20 bills.

• Other surrounding agencies have had reports of counterfeit bills being passed as well.

• Due to this case being an open investigation, additional information is not being released at this time.

The Sheriff's Office wants to encourage retailers in the area to be aware of the counterfeiting problem we have experienced and check your larger bills coming in. The following is a list of simple visual points to look for to check for counterfeit bills:

• Check for the security ribbon on $5 bills and higher

• Check for the watermark of the President

• The copper colored number in the lower right hand corner on the front of the bill should shift from copper to green when you move the bill

Also, Counterfeit Detection Pens are a great tool to quickly check counterfeit bills.

If you have any questions or concerns about counterfeit bills, or have any information on any person or persons responsible manufacturing, possessing, or using counterfeit bills, please contact the Sheriff's Office, 634-6200, or your local law enforcement.
