It seems to happen at the busiest times of the year.  With the holidays upon us and money being exchanged for gifts, food and travel, those that are looking to pass fake bills are finding it easy.  The best way to avoid an unfortunate situation is to be aware, here’s what the details and what you’re looking for:

According to the Duluth Police Department there are individuals that have been passing counterfeit currency in denominations of $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 bills. The suspects have been using the bills at commercial and retail establishments in the Twin Ports so they can get “change” back that is legitimate currency.

The Duluth Police Department is requesting that businesses dealing in cash transactions use extra care to examine these currency denominations to make sure they are genuine.  Here are the serial numbers you should be looking for on the counterfeit currency:

$20.00- JK81846191A

If you encounter any of these bills or other currency that appears suspicious, please call 9-1-1.  Any information related to these incidents is also helpful so please take steps to check out the person that is using the counterfeit bills.
