    According to the City of West Liberty, a large sum of counterfeit United States currency surfaced in West Liberty, Iowa, on November 23rd, 2019. Investigators located only counterfeit one-hundred-dollar bills and fifty-dollar bills. Local businesses and residents should exercise caution when accepting large bills, including twenty-dollar bills.

    Check for watermarks and security strips before accepting any large bills. Unusual printing, such as Chinese characters, and text that advises the money is fake or for other purposes constitute items to watch for. If you locate a suspected counterfeit, contact the West Liberty Police Department at their non-emergency number (319)-627-2223.
