Counterfeit bills continue to circulate in Fargo; police believe more than 1 person involved


FARGO, North Dakota — More counterfeit bills were discovered over the weekend in Fargo and police believe it is the work of more than one person.

KFGO-AM ( ) reports that more fake $100 bills have been found in Fargo. Lt. Joel Vettel with the Fargo Police Department says authorities have identified two types of fake bills circulating in the area.

One type is a low-denomination bill that criminals are washing out and then reprinting to make them look like they're worth $20, $50 or $100. The other bills are being produced in a laser printer.

Fake bills have also been found in Moorhead, West Fargo, Wahpeton and Jamestown.
