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.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
