BATAVIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Take a good look at these bogus bills. Police in Batavia are sending out an alert to shoppers and business owners.

Investigators say counterfeit bills are showing up throughout the city.

So, how can you tell? Look for the "This is a replica" toward the bottom of the obverse (Alexander Hamilton's head.) "This is a replica" is also listed on the reverse side toward the bottom of the US Treasury Building.
