Counterfeit $100 bills in Dubuque area

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Dubuque Police Department is putting out the word about counterfeit $100 bills circulating through the tri-state area.

Merchants and citizens are asked to be wary for counterfeit currency and can obtain additional information on detecting counterfeit currency, including a "Know Your Money" poster, by visiting the United States Secret Service website

When checking currency, be sure to look for at least two verification features (ex.: the embedded denomination strip & Presidential hologram).

Merchants or citizens who believe they have a person attempting to pass a counterfeit bill should attempt to notify police during the event, or as soon as possible following the acceptance or rejection of the counterfeit currency.
