Counterfeit Money Passed In Gilmer

Police in Upshur County are warning the public to watch their money after counterfeit bills have been passed over the last two weeks. Gilmer Police says numerous fake $20 bills were among deposits turned in at First National Bank by various Gilmer businesses in July. A number of counterfeit denominations were circulated at a few Gilmer businesses last week.

A First National Bank official said another counterfeit $20 was found at their Big Sandy branch on Monday. Investigators say the fakes are "high-quality counterfeits". The fakes have been sent on the U.S. Treasury Department.
