OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Ogden police say they're seeing an increase in counterfeit cash around town. Police say that as colorful new 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills are being released to the public that counterfeiters are trying to copy them and pass the fakes off as the real thing.
Most of the counterfeit bills police have seen recently are 20 and 50 dollar bills.
Police are urging the public to look for new security features in the bills such as a magnetic strip on the left side of the new bills.
