Funny money showing up in Grand Forks and Duluth

If your hundred dollar bill has the words “for motion picture use only” on it, it may not be legal tender.

Paul Walsh of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

[Grand Forks Police Lt. Brett A.] Johnson said that law enforcement in the region has recovered several of the counterfeit $100 bills in recent weeks. “We would like to remind merchants to be vigilant when taking in cash and encourage them to closely examine all currency, especially $100 bills,” Johnson said.

Police in Duluth said in a statement that these bills are often passed in settings that “divert a person’s attention,” such as a busy line at the grocery store or restaurant.
