Local Counterfeit Case Developing


Two local banks receiving local business deposits containing counterfeit $100 bills have been reported recently.

On August 13th an officer responded to Eastman National Bank.  They had received counterfeit $100 bill from a local business.  This morning, an officer was called to RCB North.  The bank had received two counterfeit $100 bills that were in deposits from two more local businesses.

These are relatively high quality prints, but the serial numbers on all the counterfeit $100 bills seized so far are have all been the same.
