The Dallas County Treasurer’s Office was recently presented with two counterfeit $10 bills.
“In my 18 months here, we’ve never had a counterfeit bill,” said Dallas County Treasurer Mitch Hambleton of Dallas Center, “and now we’ve had two in the past week.”
Hambleton said the bogus bills passed through his office and were deposited with the county’s bank, where the counterfeits were detected. He said the bank then handed them off to the U.S. Secret Service for investigation.
The Dallas County Treasurer’s office office directly takes in motor vehicle registrations, drivers license fees and property taxes.
“We also receive and deposit funds for most other county offices,” Hambleton said. “The public should have their guard up and be aware of all currency they receive.”
