Fraudulent Warning, Counterfeit Bill Alert From Wayne PD

WAYNE – A pair of alerts were issued to the Wayne Area Economic Development office from the Wayne Police Department on Monday.

According to a release from WAED, the first email was issued just after 11 a.m. on July 12 warning the public that there was a case of identity theft/fraud while a counterfeit bill alert was also issued later in the afternoon.

The fraudulent charge involved a local resident’s PayPal account. The PayPal account was linked to the victim’s debit card. Wayne PD reminds you to check your accounts and report any issues to them at 402-375-2626.

Also, a questionable $100 bill was found on the street and when tested, proved to be counterfeit. This is just another reminder that businesses should review cash handling procedures with their front-line staff and be alert for fake bills.  As always, if you have any questions, contact the Wayne PD 402-375-2626.
