CELINA, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Celina Police say they're getting reports of counterfeit cash being used in the city.

In a Facebook post, the department says scammers are using all denominations of bills from $5 to $100 bills. While some of the money may look legitimate, they say you can tell a fake by the feel. Police say counterfeit money feels more like copier paper. It also won't have some of the security features you'd see in real bills like the embedded ribbon and 3D images.

Police also say some of the money will even have 'Motion Picture Purposes'' written on it. Officers are asking people to be vigilant and to check bills carefully before accepting them.
