POLSON – Counterfeit money is apparently being passed in some Polson-area businesses.

The local Chamber of Commerce has warned businesses to be on the lookout for the fake bills, saying that “multiple businesses in the Polson area have been victim to accepting counterfeit money over the last few days.”

Polson Police officials could not be reached for comment, but the chamber notified members that the bills being spent are reported to be $20 bills, and all have had the same serial number on them: JE07901424E.

There is no security strip inside the bills, according to the notice, and no hologram.

“The Polson Police Department recommends that businesses use counterfeit pens, especially on larger bills,” the chamber says. People are asked to contact the department at 883-8212 if they discover any of the counterfeit bills.
