Fake "movie" money has been making it's way around Tomahawk, according to the Tomahawk Police Department.

In a Facebook post, the department urged local businesses and residents to be on the look out for the fake money.

The bills have "For Motion Picture Use Only" printed on them, but do look like actual U.S. currency.

You're asked to contact your local law enforcement agency if you come across any of the fake bills.
