Current Events in Raleigh and North Carolina
Recently, officials have been investigating counterfeit 50 and 100 dollar bills that have passed through many businesses. These bills have mostly been found passing through food trucks, which take and give out cash fast. Authorities say that the bills are very well made, but able to detect under close examination.
To stop these fake bills being passed through businesses, business owners should be more careful about the bills coming into your store or restaurant. One of the men who was using these dollar bills (and knowing they were fake) has been arrested.
In response to the recent increase of fake money, many businesses in the area have stopped taking 100 dollar bills. This seems to help, because most counterfeit money producers will print 50's and 100 dollar bills.
I think that it is very important that we don't let people get away with this, before it gets too large and upsets the economy of NC. Everyone must do their part to stop the fake money from circulating.
