A number of complaints have been called into the Crowley Police Department regarding counterfeit money. 

Officers say the bills are mostly $20 but some complaints have come in as $10 and $5 denominations. Officials say that most businesses that come in contact with the counterfeit money, catch the fake bills before being accepted. 

Crowley officials are asking that people check their money for any discrepancy. 

The bill pictured is a $20 bill which is counterfeit. The front has no watermarks to identify it (contact your local financial institution or the PD for what watermarks to look for) and the back printing of the bill is slightly crooked.

Some bills also have Chinese writing on the bills or the phrase "this is not real money".
