Authorities are warning Springfield residents and businesses of some fake money being circulated throughout the city.
Springfield Police spokesperson Ryan Walsh said that their department is investigating reports of counterfeit $100 bills that have been handed over to taxi drivers, businesses, and via person-to-person internet exchanges.
"If you are involved in an internet exchange, you can always do it at the police department or make sure that it occurs in a location that is on camera," Walsh added.
Store clerks are being advised to try and get a detailed description of the person and a license plate number - if they leave in a car - if fake money is spotted after the fact.
