Don’t take money from these women! Duo suspected of using counterfeit cash
DENNIS — The State Police are looking for two women who passed counterfeit money at a Wawa in this Cape May County township.
The two women purchased gas and other items at the Ocean View store early Sunday evening, according to police. They arrived at the station on Route 9 in a black Dodge Ram quad cab pickup truck with a black male in his late 40s, according to State Police.
The women also had the store make change for their counterfeit bills, police said.
A similar incident occurred at the Rio Grand Wawa in Middle Township earlier the same day, police said.
Anyone with information about this incident should call State Police at 609-861-5697.
Counterfeiting cash is a federal crime.
If you suspect a counterfeit note or have information about counterfeiting activity, the U.S. Treasury Department said you should immediately report it to the U.S. Secret Service's New Jersey field office at 609-989-2008, or to your local police department.
The feds also recommend that you:
- Do not return the bill to the passer.
- Delay the passer with some excuse, if possible.
- Observe the passer's description and write down their vehicle license plate numbers if you can.
- Write your initials and date in the white border area of the suspected counterfeit note.
- Do not handle the counterfeit note. Place it inside a protective cover, a plastic bag, or envelope to protect it until you place it in the hands of an identified Secret Service agent.
- Surrender the note or coin only to a properly identified police officer or a Secret Service special agent, or mail it to your nearest U.S. Secret Service field office.
