Lieutenant Jason Bond referred to reports from the Liberal, Kansas police department. Bills identified in Liberal have matching serial numbers. 12 bills with the serial number JG76586628C have been seized.There are several ways to identify counterfeit notes. Legitimate currency has a different feel compared to fake bills, due to the material used for printing. The portrait at the center of the face of a bill should appear almost lifelike and stand out, where a fake will look flat, and the border of a real bill will be clear and distinguishable, where a counterfeit will be blurred and indistinct.Financial institutions offer tools to assist in identifying fake bills. Many banks have special markers available to customers. These markers allow clerks to make a quick, small mark on a bill. If a note is legitimately issued currency, no change will happen on the face of the note. However, a counterfeit will allow the ink from the marker to make a colored mark. Markers have an iodine-based ink that reacts with common wood pulp paper, leaving a black stain behind. Sharen Wilson noted Bank of the Panhandle offers pen lights to customers, which can help spot counterfeits by looking for security features that will be in real currency. These features are not available in counterfeits. The additional security features include small blue and red fibers embedded into the material of real money, as well as a portrait watermark on the righthand side of a bill. True currency also has a thin security strip embedded into it to the right of the central portrait.Anyone who suspects counterfeit money is being used for any form of purchase are encouraged to contact local authorities immediately.
