Burgaw Businesses Dealing with Counterfeit Money

BURGAW -- A shopper is on a spending spree in Pender County, but this spree spells trouble for area stores.

The Family Dollar, Piggly Wiggly and the Water Department have all received counterfeit bills in the past week.

It's hard to detect the difference between the fake money and the real thing, but there are some signs to the bogus cash. The Secret Service says you can often tell a counterfeit bill by its feel, and the look if you check it closely.
