How to spot counterfeit bills

There have been some recent news reports about counterfeit $20 bills showing up at a Wal-Mart in Lee's Summit. If you're worried about you or your business unknowingly accepting fake cash, I urge you to check out our Forgery Section's web page. It has lots of tips on how to pick out a counterfeit and pictures of genuine versus counterfeit U.S. currency. Authorities aren't sure how wide-spread this particular counterfeiting operation is in the metro area, but it's best to know how to identify a fake so you don't end up short on real cash.
