Placer County Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a woman who has been passing counterfeit $100 bills throughout the county. The woman was captured on surveillance videos in different businesses, passing the bogus bills. The bills look authentic but Det. Jim Hudson if you hold the bills up to the light you can see a watermark from the back.
“These $100 bills, if you look a little bit close you’ll notice on the back of the bill, the watermarks were printed on the back. So when you hold it up to the light from the front, you can see the watermarks, but you shouldn’t be able to see them from the back. So it’s just paying attention to the currency that’s coming in as you take it.”
Anyone who knows this woman is asked to contact Detective Jim Hudson at (530) 889-7855. Anyone wishing to report information but remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is urged to call Placer County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-923-8191 or go to their Web site at www.placer crime stoppers-dot-com
