The Norfolk Police Division is warning residents to be on the lookout for counterfeit money.
A press release from the police division said Norfolk police have taken eight reports of counterfeit money being passed in Norfolk since the beginning of the year.
Captain Michael Bauer of the Norfolk Police Division said the denominations of the counterfeit bills include $10, $20 and $50.
While some are attempts to replicate actual currency, some bill are readily identifiable as fake, he said. These bills actually say “COPY” and others have the incorrect president’s name on them. Some bills are what is termed “Motion Picture Money.”
These bills mostly look like actual currency but plainly identify it as not actual currency and only for use
in motion pictures. The U.S. Currency Education Program identifies security features on each denomination of actual bills.
