HANCOCK - It's the Christmas-shopping season, and unfortunately it's also a time when some people take the opportunity to run various scams, such as counterfeit money.

Hancock Police Chief Mike Beaudoin said recently local banks have been receiving many counterfeit $20 bills, and he's urging business owners and employees to be especially vigilant when they receive $20 bills from customers.

"There's so much cash out there, now," he said.

Although not every business owner or employee is trained in spotting counterfeit money, Beaudoin said some of the $20 bills making the rounds locally should be easy to spot.

"Some of them aren't that good," he said.

If people suspect they have a counterfeit bill in their possession, they are asked to report it to local law enforcement agencies, Beaudoin said.
