Counterfeit Money At Northeast Farmers' Markets

Jen Miller

The Farmers Market Federation of New York is circulating the following message about the recent use of counterfeit money at farmers' markets in New York and throughout the Northeast.  There is no specific mention of Vermont but it is something to be aware of if you sell at farmers' markets. --------------

There have been recent reports of counterfeit money being used at farmers markets throughout the Northeast.  The perpetrator generally buy $10 to $20 worth of goods and pay with a $100 bill, getting change for the rest. These bills will pass a normal fraud check since they are made with bleached $5 bills, so please be on the lookout for any money that looks suspicious and alert your farmers as well.

Please see the article below for more information on what to look for and pictures:
