The Apache Junction Police Department wants you to know that counterfeiters are busy passing fake money! There have been reports that several $100 bills and $20 bills that have been confiscated by a local bank through business deposits. If you see something suspicious here are some ways to check. If in doubt, can bring the bill to a financial institution, or call the police department.
If you come into possession of a suspected counterfeit bill, do the right thing. The police and federal authorities are not looking to arrest you for it. They will want to question you in order to see if the source of distributing and/or printing the fake bill can be identified. Call your local law enforcement agency, in this case the Apache Junction Police Department. Fingerprints may or may not be available on the bill. Try not to handle it any further until you pass it along to police.
