Banks Reports Six Counterfeit Money Cases in a Week

Posted: Updated:
This week alone there's been six reports of counterfeit bills in Bismarck and Mandan.

The bills come into the bank from business deposits and discovered by daily audits. The banks use a variety of different tools to find the fake bills. Special pens, and even a black light to locate certain traits. One of the best tools is your fingers.

"And a lot of people don't realize there are those blue and red fibers inside a bill, and one thing with a counterfeit bill, those will be printed on the paper. The real money will actually have it embedded, and you can scratch at the surface of a bill and it's going to have some texture to it," says Capital Credit Union Vice President Of Member Services, Dustin Bitz.

Once a fake bill is found, the banks report it to the police and then they're passed on to the Secret Service.
