CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is warning residents about a flood of counterfeit $10 bills.

Morrisey says a Charleston bank recently alerted his office to a large number of bogus bills being passed at stores in the area. He says the bills all have the serial number IL 31448733B.

The U.S. Secret Service says anyone who receives a counterfeit bill should try to note the description of the person passing it as well as any relevant license plate number. The recipient should then write his or her initials and the date in the white border area of the bill, place it in an envelope and turn it over to police or the Secret Service.
