Port Huron– At least five businesses in eastern Michigan have reported receiving counterfeit cash, according to authorities.

The St. Clair County sheriff’s office said businesses around Marysville, Port Huron Township and Fort Gratiot Township reported getting $100 bills last week.

The businesses included a Menards, an AutoZone and a liquor store. Other companies may have received the bills but not realized they were fake, said Lt. Matt Pohl.

Authorities said  shoppers use the fake money with the hope of getting legitimate money in exchange.

The sheriff’s office believed the people were in a rented white Kia Forte with a Florida license plate.

Anyone with information can contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office.
