Law Enforcement in Gower and Clinton County are warning the public and area businesses to be alert after a pair of counterfeit 100-dollar bills were passed at two businesses in Gower late last week.
Police in Gower say they are working with the two businesses to identify possible suspects in the case.
Authorities encourage business owners to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
Some security measures built in to real currency include color shifting ink on the numeral in the lower right corner, a watermark on the right side of the bill, raised printing on the bill, and the security thread to the right of the portrait.
UV counterfeit detection lamps and counterfeit money pens are also helpful tools.
