'Tis the season for holiday shopping and more counterfeiting. Police say they often see more bad bills passed this time of year because stores are busier.  A few days ago, Bend Police arrested three men in an alleged counterfeit ring.  Sergeant Greg Owens with the Bend Police Department says better technology seems to make counterfeiting easier. In the recent bust, the bills were described as pretty convincing.  Here's what to watch for: “When you're looking at money look for things that are odd; does it feel right? Is the paper feel different: is it an odd color? Is it an odd size?? A lot of time they're bigger or smaller than real money." 

Cashiers and business owners need to watch for people buying a very low priced item with a large bill. This past weekend- three people each allegedly used counterfeit $20 bills at the 7-11 on south Highway 97. The clerk was able to give police a description of their car leading to a quick arrest.
