Evansville Police want retailers and customers to be on the lookout for counterfeit bills.
Evansville Police want retailers and customers to be on the lookout for counterfeit bills.

Officers say they've seen in an increase in counterfeit reports, and they say unless arrests are made, once the fake money hits the River City, it moves fast and it's also easy to become a victim.

Jason Cullum with EPD says, "We've had retail stores that have been the victims, we've also had at least one individual that was asked to make change for a hundred dollar bill at a local gas station. They did that thinking they were doing somebody a favor and when they tried to use that one hundred dollar bill at a retailer later in the day, they found out it was counterfeit. "

Police say businesses should arm themselves with a counterfeit detector pen.  Usually, fifties and hundreds are checked, but police say it doesn't hurt to also make sure twenty dollar bills are legal.
