SEYMOUR, Ind. (WHAS11) – Authorities are warning the public about potential counterfeit bills.
Police say they have seen a rise in “bleached bills” in the area.
It’s a process of taking a low value bill, bleaching it and then printing a high value on it, which is typically $100.
The counterfeiters then use them for low dollar purchases so they can get real change back.
Police have some tips for spotting fake bills, like checking the watermark or looking for off centered or fuzzy print.
If you have suspected counterfeit cash, you are asked to call police.
