Prophetstown Police Department has received a fake $10 bill. It was circulated and received at a local bank. Authorities say be sure to check all incoming $10 bills carefully.
When counterfeit money is circulating, it is wise to check $20’s and $50’s as well. Watch out for money that says “motion picture” which is used as props for movies, but at first glance can look real.
Avoid making change for customers who do not purchase items. Be especially careful of handling requests for change with minimal value purchases. (Ie. a pack of gum paid for with a $20 or $100 bill.)
