SAN LUIS VALLEY - Counterfeit $100 and $20 bills are circulating throughout Del Norte and the Valley. The $100 bills are stage bills used in movies. The texture of the bills feels like plastic. The $20 counterfeit bills have white corners, appear fuzzy and some have identical serial numbers and a paper texture.
How to identify counterfeit bills:
Look for Motion Picture Purposes printed on the bill.
Look for color shifting ink.
Look for white corners.
Feel the texture of the bill.
Hold the bill up to the light to look for a holograph of the face, watermark and security thread.
Side by side comparison of the bills to a valid bill if questionable can be helpful.
