Officials in Shreveport and Texarkana are urging you to be careful with the money you accept.  KSLA is reporting that several counterfeit bills have been passed across the Ark-La-Tex in the past week, and authorities need your help to catch the crooks behind this scam.

On Thursday and Friday of last week, crooks in two different cities passed the bogus bucks to legitimate businesses and they are most likely still trying to do so.  The U.S. Secret Service is working with the Shreveport and Texarkana, Texas police departments in order to apprehend these crooks.

If you recognize these people and/or you suspect that someone has tried to pass phony cash at your business - reach out to the authorities right away.
