Fake cash reported in Batesville; tips to spot bogus bills

BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) – Fake money is being used in Batesville, according to the Independence County Sheriff's Department. 

Investigator Jeff Sims says the currency has been in the form of twenty-dollar bills, but says that doesn't mean his department won't see other denominations. 

Sims says there are several ways to spot phony cash. Check and see if the bills contain a security strip inside the bills. He says you can do this by holding the bill up to the light. 

Another step is to see if the "20" at the bottom right corner of the bill changes color. These same features are found in 5, 10, 50, and 100-dollar bills. 

Sims says some of the older series of bill will not contain these security features.  He says money does not bleed, so if any bills you get have color running on it, it's probably bogus. 

Anyone with information about the fake cash or questions on how to spot the phony bills, are asked to call the Independence County Sheriff's Department.
