Tyngsboro Girl Scouts Receive $80 In Counterfeit Cash For Cookies

TYNGSBORO (CBS) – Girl Scout cookies are very popular this time of year, and it turns out some people will do anything they can to get them.

A Girl Scout in Tyngsboro recently stopped by a local TD Bank to turn in money her troop made from selling cookies and found that she received $80 from four counterfeit $20 bills.

“This is a very unfortunate situation that someone would do this at all, especially for the Girl Scouts,” said Allison Rubin, the media and public relations manager for the Girls Scouts of Eastern Mass.

The troop was selling the cookies to support a hiking trip to Rowley in May and a Cape Cod gathering.

“We really want to appreciate and say thank you to everyone. We are not soliciting outside funding, but we really appreciate their support.

“I know, on behalf of Troop 60916, they really appreciate the support of the public during this time and throughout the whole cookie season,” said Rubin.
