Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

In today’s world there are surveillance camera’s nearly everywhere and there are thousands of criminal acts captured by these cameras. Images of ‘crimes in progress’ have resulted in scores of arrests and most often make convictions almost a foregone conclusion. On occasion, there’s clear video images of the perpetrators, however, investigators are not able to identify the suspects in the surveillance video. This is where you can help.

The Springfield Police Department has posted pictures of suspects who they haven’t been able to identify -up to this point- along with the criminal case number on their website spd.springfield.il.us . Hit the ‘Can You Identify’ tab and see if you know who any of the suspects are. If you do, call the Crime Stopper tipline anonymously at 788-8427 and receive a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest. Make sure you get the case number if you are able to identify any of the suspects. We’ve even posted a link below on our website Cashfortips.us so you can view the images and return to our site to leave your tip. If your identifying information leads to their arrest, you'll earn a cash reward. Let’s show these criminals that crime doesn’t payfor them, but it can for law abiding citizens!

Fake Money Used in Social Media Web Sales

Look-a-like Money is Worthless, Numerous Area Residents Victimized

Fake Money Used in Social Media Web Sales

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
April 5, 2018

Officer Matt Goulet, for Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard counties.

In the past Crime Stoppers has advised you about some of the dangers in transactions that originate on social media sites such as Facebook or Craig’s list. This week I want to focus on worthless money sellers have received in many of these transactions. At first glance the bills look like real U.S. currency however; on closer examination it’s evident that the money is not real. There are two main types of deceptive look-a-like money; One form is commonly referred to as Chinese money because it has pink Chinese symbols on the face and back of the US bills. Another fraudulent form is called movie money because it states on the front “Motion Picture Use Only”. The “motion picture use” phrase blends into the bill and deceives the unknowing victim. You can see examples of this worthless fake currency on the Crime Stoppers website Cashfortips.us.

 

If you have any information about persons involved in passing invalid money, give Crime Stoppers a call and you'll earn cash reward if your information leads to an arrest. Call the Crime Stopper tipline at 788-8427 or leave an anonymous tip on this website (Cashfortips.us).
