Counterfeit money passed in Du Quoin



Du Quoin Police warn shoppers and retailers about someone passing phoney cash.

Police say most of the counterfeit cash is in $20 dollar bills but range from $5 to $100 dollar bills.

At first glance, officers say the fake cash looks real but the bills are slightly different in color, a bit smaller, have a different texture, and do not have a security strip when you hold it up to a light.

If you receive a fake bill, call police or take the funny money to your local bank.
