Funny Money Floating Around Lawton Area
North Texas and Southern Oklahoma residents need to be on alert for some funny money. Lawton Police are warning residents about some counterfeit $50 and $100 bills that really aren’t too difficult to distinguish as fake.
On the $100 bill, you can see what appears to be Chinese writing to the left of President Grant’s portrait. On the $50 bill, the words ‘For Motion Picture Use Only’ appear to the right of Benjamin Franklin.
In a statement released to area media, Lawton police said that pizza delivery drivers have been one of the targets of the scam since many of them deliver at night and don’t notice the bills are fake until they return to the restaurant.
