BEDFORD POLICE WARNS OF COUNTERFEIT CURRENCY CIRCULATING IN THE AREA
BEDFORD - JANUARY 4, 2023 - The Bedford Police Department has received multiple reports recently of counterfeit bills being circulated in our city.
The bills we have received will pass a counterfeit marker test, but the bills are altered to show a larger value.
"We want local businesses and individuals to be aware of what to look for to ensure you’re not accepting a bill that is not real. The attached photographs show where the security threads are on bills, so you will know where to look. Please make sure you are checking the security threads and watermarks to be certain the bills you accept are not fake," Bedford Police Department in a recent Facebook posting.
Over the last several days businesses throughout the City of Bedford have filed reports with the department.
