PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- There's some funny money making its way around Charlotte County.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, Federal Reserve note replicas imprinted with Chinese characters, or "training money", are going around the county.

On Monday morning, more than $20,000 worth of these fake $100 bills were found during a traffic stop.

Deputies say the passengers were coming from a gentlemen's club in Port Charlotte.

Anyone who’s received these fake bills is urged to call the sheriff's office.
