Sheriff Lance Humphreys warned Yalobusha and Water Valley businesses to be on the lookout for counterfeit bills, particularly $5 bills and $100 bills.
Humphreys said four or five businesses in Water Valley have received the funny money during the past week. While most of the funny money have been limited to $5 bills, one business had two counterfeit $100 bills.
“The quality is poor,” Humphreys reported, adding that cashiers needs to examine all bills.
“Most of what I have seen is pretty obvious. The color is off, margins are not registered and even the bill sizes may vary,” Humphreys advised.
