Authorities suggest that businesses and consumers utilize various detection methods when receiving currency, such as:
- Looking at the serial numbers. If you receive several bills at the same time make sure the serial numbers are not the same

- Checking for the correct security strip located within the currency
- Checking for watermarks located on the currency
