Local business owners are being reminded to check their money as it comes in after a counterfeit $100 bill was caught in Luxemburg Monday morning. The counterfeit bill collected at a Luxemburg fast food restaurant was found thanks to their detection pen and key elements missing from it. Luxemburg Police Chief Chris Gulbrand says it is still early in the investigation, but it is a reminder for business owners to be vigilant heading into the holiday season.
Gulbrand advises business owners to mark any bill above $20 with their detection pens to make sure it is not counterfeit. You can learn more about security elements embedded in paper money online with this story.
