Counterfeit Bills

Counterfeiters are using real bills and putting them through a process called "washing" to take the ink off of the bill. They then print a different denomination on the face of the bill. This process does not, hoewever, get rid of the watermark or the embedded strip that tells the denomination of the bills.

Be sure to look for the watermark and the embedded strip. Counterfeit pens will not catch these bills because they are printed on an actual bill.
