Counterfeit bills passed in Paulding

PAULDING – The Progress received an alert from the Paulding Police Department on Friday that approximately five different area businesses had been passed counterfeit money. The counterfeit bills included $10, $20, $50 and $100’s.



The currency looks and feels differently, the color is a little darker and the cut around the edge is uneven. According to reports two individuals who were allegedly in possession of the money could be facing charges and information was turned over to the prosecutor.


Each business owner or anyone taking cash at a business is urged to mark their bills and check them to make sure they are real bills.

In Grover Hill on Monday night, a business believed they were in possession of fake bills and the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office was called. Those bills were determined to not be counterfeit.

The police department said they’ve had no further incidents since Friday.

If you believe you are in the possession of a counterfeit bill, notify the Paulding Police Department at 419-399-3311. If at all possible, get a license plate number.
