Du Quoin – The Du Quoin Police Department is warning citizens of a recent string of counterfeit $100 bills circulating the city. According to a release on the Police Department’s Facebook page, these bills are easily distinguishable by the red oriental writing on the back of the bill. There have been recent attempts to mark over the oriental writing with a marker or pen (as seen in the photos). These bills are easily obtained but will mark as a counterfeit with a testing pen and the watermark is not present. They ask that you be diligent and observe $100 bills when you take them as payment.
