Guam - Guam Customs & Quarantine agents confiscated counterfeit U.S. currency three times this week. Two of the bogus bills were found on passengers at the Guam International Airport. The first passenger came in from Saipan on December 2, while the second passenger came in from Taipei, Taiwan this past Sunday

Customs officials add that the following day a third bill was found by a civilian clerk who was counting cash from the day's receipts. The fake money were all in $100 denominations and have been turned over to the US secret service for further investigation. Customs meanwhile urges the community to be aware and report all findings of counterfeit currency to the authorities immediately.
