No reimbursement for counterfeits

Let me provide your readers with the correct information in regard to counterfeit bills.

Banks are required to send all counterfeit bills to the Secret Service. Banks will not exchange a real bill for a fake bill. The Secret Service will also not exchange real bills for fake bills.

Their web site states: “There is no remuneration for the return of the counterfeit bill, but it is doing the ‘Right Thing’ to help combat counterfeiting.”
