KAMLOOPS - Kamloops RCMP are warning businesses about counterfeit bills.

RCMP says counterfeit $20 American bills were reported by numerous businesses in the city over the past week.

Some businesses had accepted the bogus bills without realizing they were fake, while others turned away the funny money, according to an RCMP media release.

Police are reminding businesses to always be on the look out for the funny money and review counterfeit detection methods with their employees.

“Let employees know it is within their right to refuse any cash payment if they suspect it might be counterfeit,” Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in the release.

The Bank of Canada website has more information on how to check for counterfeit Canadian and American cash.
