First National Bank of Vandalia is alerting business owners to be on the look out for counterfeit money. In a release, FNB says locations in Vandalia, Greenville and Ramsey have reported receiving counterfeit $20 bills that were passed at local businesses. In all instances, the counterfeit bills look legitimate at quick glance, but closer viewing shows the issues with the bills. According to FNB’s head teller Cynthia Autenrieth, the latest counterfeits are what the Secret Service refers to as “novelty notes.” At first glance, Authenrieth says they look like a real $20 bill but upon further inspection a series of Chinese symbols in red ink can be seen on both sides. And, she says they have learned this is fake money that is used to train those who count and handle money. The second novelty note passed at a local business was an example of motion picture money, in that it looks real at first and is convincing enough to use on movie or TV sets and is actually marked “for motion picture use only.” And, on top of these types of notes, FNB has also spotted a well-crafted fake $20 bill. FNB just warns area businesses to be on the look out for counterfeit money and to contact their bank or the Police if you locate suspicious money.
