Beware of Bogus Bills: Counterfeit Cash Making the Rounds in Grayson County

Counterfeit bills are being reported by local businesses in Grayson County, the latest was today at DO Stop Grocery in Caneyville.  Before you accept cash, inspect the bills closely, especially ten’s and 20’s.  According to the Secret Service counterfeit guide, security features to look for in paper currency, except for the one dollar bill, include the red and blue fibers beneath the colored ink, a watermark depicting the same president as the portrait, and the security strip depicting the denomination.  It is also important to feel the paper, often the bills will simply not feel “right” or normal.  Local law officials will continue to investigate.  If you would like to learn more about recognizing counterfeit money, visit http://www.secretservice.gov/know_your_money.shtml
