The Better Business Bureau and the Abilene Police Department say that for the past three weeks there has been a rise in fake money being used in Key City stores. The bureau is saying that these stores are the first line of defense against these crimes.

As of now no word yet on the person or persons who is committing these crimes. Steve Abel, president of the Better Business Bureau, says that this type of crime is difficult to solve as the money might change many hands before the person it's caught.
