The Thermopolis Police Department–in a recent Facebook post is warning residents and businesses of potential counterfeit bills circulating throughout the community.
According to the US Department of the Treasury, there are $70 million counterfeit notes circulating in the US. According to the Federal Reserve, the $20 bill is the most counterfeited bill in the US. Due to its frequent use in transactions, the $20 is often overlooked by even the simplest of tests for authenticity.
The department encourages individuals and businesses to check bills and make sure that they are legitimate. So far it has been $100 bills only. If anyone receives a suspicious looking form of currency please have it verified by a bank and make a report to the Thermopolis Police Department.
