Warning issued on bogus cash


The Secret Service is asking shoppers and cashiers to take extra measures during the holiday season to ensure that the money they are accepting is genuine.

Officials said quick transactions in crowded stores give counterfeiters chances to pass bogus cash, which is easier to make because of advances in technology.

Anyone who suspects a bill to be fake should look for the proper watermark or security thread.
