The Springfield Police Department is warning people of “copy money” being passed in the area. Note the bill actually has the words “copy money” printed on it.

A noticeably fake bill was passed at a Springfield business recently, and cops are cautioning citizens to be diligent about the copy cash. The $20 bill looks similar to a real bill in design, but has the words “copy money” printed on it in two spots on the front of the bill.

A photo included in a Springfield Police Department Facebook post from Jan 18 shows the bill pinned to a bulletin board with a note.  The note reads, “This was taken on Sunday. Please pay attention!”

The Springfield Police Department asks that you take a moment to look at cash when you are handling it.
