Ivins Man Camps Out in Front of Chase Bank After Receiving Counterfeit Bill

ST. GEORGE – An Ivins man says he received a counterfeit $100 bill from Chase Bank.

Kipp Hagaman has camped out since Tuesday on the street corner in front of Chase Bank, 95 E. Tabernacle St. His large cardboard sign read:“Chase Bank Passed Me A Counterfeit $100 Bill!!”

According to Hagaman’s transaction receipt from Chase Bank, on March 15 at 3:53 p.m., he withdrew $2,000 from an account at Chase Bank on 95 E. Tabernacle St.

Hagaman said he received his $2,000 from Chase Bank as twenty $100 bills. He said that when he entered the bank he only had $3 on his person.

“I know that I had no other $100 bill,” Hagaman said. “I came here because I had bills to pay.”

After receiving his money at Chase Bank, Hagaman said he went directly to Check City, 490 W. St. George Blvd. According to his Check City receipt, he paid them $1,000 cash for a bill at 3:59 p.m. According to a second receipt from Check City, he then sent a six-page fax at 4:12 pm and paid $3 cash.

Hagaman said that he left Check City at about 4:13 p.m. and then went to America First Credit Union, 1564 W. Sunset Blvd. He said he attempted to pay another bill with the ten remaining $100 bills he received at Chase Bank.

Hagaman said that the teller at America First Credit Union thought one of the $100 bills was peculiar. Hagaman said that the teller spoke with the assistant branch manager and that they told Hagaman that one of his $100 bills was counterfeit. Hagaman said they asked him where he received the bill and he said Chase Bank.
