DeRidder Police are reporting a rise in counterfeit money being used in the City. They say that it is usually $100 bills and are a common purchase from websites referred to as “movie money” or the bills that have a Chinese or Japanese stamps on the front, back or both sides of the bill.

The police ask that residents inspect their bills. If you look at the bills in the pictures, one is clearly marked “For Cinematic Use Only” and “For Motion Picture Use Only”.

Intentionally using a counterfeit bill can results in fines between $5,000 to $1 million and or imprisonment for six months to ten years.
