Kilgore, Tx — East Texas law enforcement officials have discovered an increase in the amount of counterfeit dollar bills in the area.
Kilgore fraud detectives report there has been an influx of poorly made fake $20 bills over the past several weeks. The majority of the counterfeit money has been found at local banks after businesses make cash deposits.
Authorities ask businesses in the area to be aware and to check all $20 dollar bills for counterfeit. They say a quick and easy way to check is to look for the security stripe when holding a twenty up to a light.
If you come across a fake twenty, contact your local authorities immediately.
