SHERMAN, Tex. -- Someone is passing fake $100 bills to businesses around Texoma, even ripping off the Girl Scouts.

Sherman police say over the past couple of weeks, several businesses have reported fake bills circulating around North Texas. In fact, Sherman Police Sgt. Bruce Dawsey says several Girl Scout troops have been handed the counterfeit bills in exchange for Girl Scout cookies and real change.

Authorities say you need to know what to look out for.

"There are a few counterfeit hundred dollar bills in circulation in this area, as well as in the Metroplex and in Dallas, so it’s prevalent, and it runs in cycles. We’ll get several of them, then they go away, and then it comes back, so it’s something people need to be aware of," Dawsey says.

If you think you've been handed fake bills, contact police.
