The Freetown Police Department received a call from a local bank alerting them of this counterfeit $100 bill. They are now alerting the public to be on the lookout for any other counterfeit bills in circulation.

“Merchants, even though a counterfeit detector pen will indicate that this is a true bill, it is only because it is the right banknote paper-originally a one dollar bill. If you have any doubts, call the police department.

This case has been turned over to the department’s detective unit for further investigation and the counterfeit bill will be turned over to the United States Secret Service.” – Freetown Police Department
