The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office has already received calls about the use of counterfeit bills during the Yard Crawl.

They are encouraging the community to check their money by:

  • holding the bill up to light
  • looking for watermarks
  • comparing it to another bill of the same denomination
  • using an ultraviolet light
  • feeling for texture or thinness
  • inspecting borders and printing quality

If you believe you have received counterfeit money, contact the Sheriff’s office non-emergency number at 540-459-6100.
