Police received a fake $20 bill that is that has several indicators that show it is not legal tender.

One indicator Decatur police noted about this example was the feel of the money, which was was "glossy to the touch."

Another giveaway is that there are several spottings on the bill that indicate the money is for "motion picture purposes."
