Counterfiet Bills Circulating in Tri-State
The Bullhead City Police Department wants to warn you about counterfeit bills that have been circulating around the Tri-State. The denominations vary. Police say you can hold the bills up to a light to see things that would prove to be fake. Some $100 bills, for instance, have watermarks of Abraham Lincoln or even Santa Claus instead of Benjamin Franklin and a security thread from a $5 bill that’s in the wrong spot. The paper being used to print the bills are from washed and reprinted $5 bills. Some of them also have Chinese characters on them or are marked “For Motion Pictures Only.” Those bills are called Hollywood money, which is used in movies and sold online. Several local businesses have been presented with the fake money. If you see some of it, you’re asked to contact the police department and get a description of the person who tried to use it.
