This kind of scam is horrible as is, especially in a small town with tons of small businesses. Getting currency with no value does not benefit the community or businesses. 

Fake Money Being Distributed In This Michigan City

There have been multiple reports of fake currency being spread in the small Michigan city of Three Rivers.

The community took to the Three Rivers Facebook group and pointed out the situation that they have been dealing with over the past few weeks. 

An owner in the community went to the page and posted the heads-up to the community:

"Just a heads up for all business owners who accept cash. Double-check all your bills. I didn’t even notice this until I tried to spend it!

Other communities, not too far away from Three Rivers, also noted that they had found some of the fake currency floating around some businesses as well.

The fake money being passed around isn't high in value either, in fact, the bills being passed out are only $20 bills. 

What To Do If You Find Fake Currency

If you come into contact with any counterfeit money, you should contact the authorities immediately. You can also contact the Secret Service, or the U.S. Department of Secretary to report fake money in circulation.
