Counterfeit Money Circulating in Eugene

EUGENE, Ore. — If you have cash in your wallet, you might want to take a close look at it.

Eugene Police say a series of fake bills have circulated in the area. EPD says a majority of counterfeit money comes in $20 bills.

While the amount didn’t top several hundred dollars, police are asking people to keep an eye on their dollar bills.

“Everything on here says this is a piece of United States currency, but it’s not it’s just a piece of paper with some printing on it, which really is what our money is anyway, but it’s done by the federal governement. The more these things are in circulation, the less the rest of it’s worth,” said Det. Steve Williams, Eugene Police Department.

EPD says if you think you might have counterfeit money, take it to your bank to be checked out. Then file a police report if the money is deemed fake.
