A recent warning by the DeKalb Police Department regarding counterfeit bills could mean fake money is circulating in the Rockford area too.

Late last week, the DeKalb Police Department Facebook page shared photos of the funny money saying "several businesses received counterfeit bills with the words 'MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY' in place" of "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

They are asking the public to be diligent when dealing with the money as these fake bills don't have watermarks and a few other noticeable differences. For more, check out the DeKalb Police Department Facebook page.

If you do happen to run into counterfeit movie money in DeKalb or the Rockford area, contact the police.
