Letter: Having a garage sale? Be careful of counterfeits

By on August 6, 2009

Please be wary, it’s garage and yard sale time.

I want everyone out there to be aware of counterfeit bills. Yes, they are out there and they’re good looking ones, too.

I went to my bank to deposit the money from my sale only to find out some were counterfeit. I was in shock.

Garage sales and yard sales are to find bargains and treasures; boy did someone get a bargain.

Please purchase a “counterfeit pen” before your sale. My teller says they are sold at office supply stores.

I’m out the money, but I just want to save others from the same. It doesn’t matter the amount lost, it’s the principle.
