Prop Money Scam Alert – Henderson County


The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office would like to make the public aware of prop movie money being utilized to conduct business transactions in the area. Several fake hundred dollar bills that look almost identical to legitimate currency have been confiscated at Smiley’s Flea Market. The bills say ‘For Motion Picture Use Only’ and are often placed between other bills in order to pass by the victim unnoticed.
