It a statement released this morning, Michelle Miller, Gallia County Chamber Director, “We received a call from Farmers Bank this morning reporting counterfeit $100 bills have been used locally.

Bills should be checked for the proper security features. Anyone receiving a counterfeit bill should contact local law enforcement.
