Counterfeit Currency

Be aware of these type of bills which have started circulating in our area.

There has been an increase in counterfeit $50 and $100 bills circulating this holiday season. Several of these bills have already been passed locally at Reno area businesses. These bills are high quality design and businesses need to train their employees on what to look for before accepting any bills.

Please see the attached Counterfeit $100 Alert that was published by the United States Secret Service.
