Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Eau Claire police are urging people to be on the lookout for counterfeit bills.

In a Facebook post, Eau Claire police said they recently confiscated $20 bills with the word "replica" in the lower right and upper left corners.

Officials said the bills were used in transactions made over Facebook Marketplace in both Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Eau Claire police officials said they are in contact with other departments and there is a suspect in the case. The investigation is ongoing.

If you believe you have been a victim of a counterfeit bill, you're asked to contact your local law enforcement.
