File a SAR on a Counterfeit Bill?

Question: 
Do we need to send a SAR when we receive a counterfeit bill even if we turn the bill over to the Secret Service?
Answer: 

Answer by Randy Carey:Only if you received more than $5,000 worth which would be the trigger for the SAR, if you have a suspect.

Answer: 

Answer by Jim Bedsole:Unless, of course, you received the counterfeit bill from a bank employee in which case there is no dollar threshold for SAR filing.
