ALERT: Beware of Counterfeit Bills

The Franklinton Police Department and United States Secret Service are currently working a counterfeit case in which $50 bills are being passed in the Franklinton area.

Specifically, $5 denominations are being "washed" and then reprinted as $50 and passed at retail stores and banks throughout our area.

Citizens, banks and retailers are asked to pay particular attention to the cash they receive, especially in the $20, $50 and $100 denominations. The bills "mark" as real; however, the security strips are different and they bear the same serial numbers.

If you come into contact with any of these counterfeit bills or someone attempting to pass the bills, please contact FPD at 985-839-2977.
