The Town of Murphy Police Department would like to remind everyone that we are seeing an increase in various counterfeit currency, mostly $20's and $50's, here in Murphy. We have taken possession of this counterfeit currency from some banks and businesses here in town. This currency may pass through many hands or businesses before it is found.
We expect more to be identified now that people will be shopping for gifts given that Christmas is less than a month away. Depending on where the counterfeit currency is identified, we recommend you call the law enforcement agency that covers that area and report it to them. For further information please review the US Secret Service's website regarding counterfeit money at:
