    Raised Notes: What's wrong with the dollar bill?

    Genuine paper currency is sometimes altered in an attempt to increase its face value. One common method is to glue numerals from higher denomination notes to the corners of lower denomination notes.

    These bills are also considered counterfeit, and those who produce them are subject to the same penalties as other counterfeiters. If you suspect you are in possession of a raised note:

    • Compare the denomination numerals on each corner with the denomination written out at the bottom of the note (front and back) and through the Treasury seal.
    • Compare the suspect note to a genuine note of the same denomination and series year, paying particular attention to the portrait, vignette and denomination numerals.

    If You Receive a Counterfeit
    • Do not return it to the passer.
    • Delay the passer if possible, without causing harm to yourself.
    • Observe the passer's description, as well as that of any companions, and the license plate numbers of any vehicles used.
    • Contact your local police department or United States Secret Service field office. These numbers can be found on the inside front page of your local telephone directory. (US Secret Service: Indianapolis 317-226-6444)
    • Write your initials and the date in the white border areas of the suspect note.
    • Limit the handling of the note. Carefully place it in a protective covering, such as an envelope.
    • Surrender the note or coin only to a properly identified police officer or a U.S. Secret Service special agent.
