Don’t be scammed


Free training

Don’t be scammed by counterfeit—know your money. The Kent County Sheriff’s Office, Cedar Springs Unit, will be hosting a free training session on identifying and reporting counterfeit money on Tuesday, December 11, at Cedar Springs City Hall. 

The presenter will be Steve McMahon, Resident Agent in Charge, of the US Secret Service Grand Rapids Office. The presentation will focus on security features in genuine currency and identify characteristics of counterfeit currency. The presentation is free, and the duration is approximately one hour. Anyone planning to attend the training should contact Sgt. Todd Probst by email at todd.probst@kentcountymi.gov.

Probst said that since January 2018, Kent County has taken 66 calls of counterfeit money. In one particular call a subject was found to be in possession of $2,000 worth of $100 bills. 

“With the big shopping season upon us, we wanted to train the area business owners how to protect themselves from this fraud,” he said.
