Counterfeit money circulating in Toledo

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Secret Service has been looking into several cases of counterfeit money in Toledo after people were paying with fake money for real goods and services.

The Better Business Bureau says people could have counterfeit money in their wallet without knowing it because counterfeit printers are coming up with more tricks, making them harder to spot without looking closely.

The BBB suggests keeping an eye on the money, comparing it with more of the same type of bills, and even feeling it. By running fingers across the print and vest of the president, people can feel a raised texture.

With the holidays approaching, BBB representatives say counterfeiters are expecting consumers to spend quickly, without paying attention.

Toledo Police say anyone who happens to come across counterfeit cash should report it to them as soon as possible.
