Atlanta Police investigate counterfeit bills
James S. Cromeans of Atlanta Police Department, "To the untrained eye, these fake bills are easily mistaken as legal tender."
According to James S. Cromeans of the Atlanta Police Department (APD), unscrupulous individuals have passed numerous counterfeit 100-dollar bills and 50-dollar bills at businesses in the area. One case in particular is under investigation by APD.
There are ways to determine if the cash you have in your pocket is legit or counterfeit. One method for a wary consumer to identify phony currency is to go to www.uscurrency.gov/denominations-information to become educated.
Also, if you believe you are in possession of counterfeit money, take the bills to a bank to determine if the currency is valid.
