Area residents and businesses are being warned to inspect any $100 bills carefully to ensure they are not counterfeit.

A notice posted on the Palmer Township website by police and issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Secret Service instructs members of the public to look for signs that $100 bills they may receive might be fakes.

Signs that the bills may not be legitimate including the number "77" on the back in the lower right-hand corner above the "100" denomination marker. The notice includes a list five serial number sets that have been apparently found by authorities on counterfeit currency circulated in the area.

"If anyone attempts to pass one of the above described counterfeit notes, please obtain as much information as possible about the individual(s) and contact your local police and the U.S. Secret Service field office at 215-861-3300," the notice instructs.
