We’ve seen three counterfeiting cases in Bend during the last few weeks.  Bend Police say it's unusual to see that many in a short time span.  Consumers and cashiers need to take a closer look at the cash they handle. When it comes to counterfeit bills, it’s a little like the game of hot potato, the last one stuck with the phony money loses. Bend Police Sergeant Ron Taylor says often banks and businesses are the victims;  but sometimes the consumer gets stuck. "If the bill is of relatively good quality, it is not uncommon for a person or a business who takes that bill to give it back out in change and then it filters down to some unsuspecting citizens. So just because a bill is received from a legitimate business does not always mean that it is a real bill." Taylor says advanced technology is making it easier for more people to make bad bills.
