Copy Cash Prompts Warning From Springfield Police

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.
