On Aug. 21 the Dare County Sheriff’s Office posted this notice about counterfeit bills circulating locally.
The Dare County Sheriff’s Office has been informed that over the last few days. three different businesses in the Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head have had counterfeit $50.00 bills taken. These bills look to be on very good quality paper, but they appear to have been washed and all with the same serial number. It appears to be a $1.00 bill that has been turned into a $ 50.00 bill, which if you use the pen on it, will show up as a real bill.
If you suspect you have a counterfeit bill, please contact your town’s law enforcement agency/Sheriff’s Office.
