Hardin County businesses and residents are advised to be alert to the possibility of counterfeit currency being circulated in the area.  

Hardin County Sheriff’s deputies are currently investigating an incident that occurred at a local business where counterfeit $100 bills were used to purchase gift cards valued at $1,000.00.  

The counterfeit bills were found to be lacking the embedded watermark; the blue stripe and orange embossed emblem were missing their reflective properties and each of the counterfeits displayed the same serial numbers.
