The Norfolk Police Division said Thursday they have had eight reports of counterfeit money changing hands recently in the Norfolk, Nebraska area.  The fake money has included $10, $20, and $50 bills. Norfolk police say some of the fake money is easy to spot while other bills are trying to look like actual currency. The bills actually say “COPY” and others have the incorrect president’s name on them. Some bills are what is termed “Motion Picture Money.”

If you think you may have received the stolen money but aren’t sure, you can check the US Currency website and the US Currency Education Program to compare the money to actual bills.
Below are some examples of the counterfeit bills.
