WFPD Investigates Recent Rash of Counterfeit Bills

Wichita Falls, Texas - The Wichita Falls Police Department's Financial Crimes Unit is currently investigating a round of counterfeit bills being circulated in the Wichita Falls area.

Police say that all businesses and individuals that come into contact with paper currency should immediately inspect its validity as smaller denomination bills are being "washed" and then reprinted to a larger currency, namely older $50 bills that do not have as many security features as new bills.

If a counterfeit bill is discovered, please contact the Wichita falls Police Department.
