Caution issued as counterfeit money makes its way into Appleton
Two counterfeit $10 were found in Appleton this past week. According to Police Chief Sedrick Borsgard, the counterfeit bills came from two different Appleton businesses.
The counterfeit money is distinguishable by the Chinese symbols on the left side on the front of the bill, and again on the right back side.
Along with the Chinese symbols the bills have a different smooth texture.
“The fakes are easy to distinguish. The scam relies on the victim not paying attention,” said Police Chief Borsgard. “The person using the bill probably tries to cover the Chinese lettering with their palm or fingers. With it covered, at a glance the bill could be mistaken for the real thing.”
The fake notes are the same size as the real thing and have pink or purple Chinese lettering. They can be found on $10, $20, $50, and $100 bills.
Some of the Chinese words written on the bill translate as “not to be used as real currency” and “bill to be used for counting practice.”
