Funny money is making its way around Kanawha County.
The secret service says they have detected 30 counterfeit 50 dollar bills in both Raleigh and Kanawha Counties.
Investigators say an ink test that would normally pick out a phony bill doesn't work with these ones. Apparently whomever made them bleached out some of the numbers and letters on 5 dollar bills and printed on those to make the 50 dollar ones.
One of the business's that actually received some of the fake money is Smith's, a family owned grocery store in Elkview.
When they went to make their daily deposit the bank noticed something wasn't right. The bank discovered that there were 3 counterfeit 50 dollar bills in their deposit.
Now the stores owner, Jim Smith, wants to make sure his customers don't get ripped off.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office at (304) 357-0169.
