ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Counterfeit $20 bills are still popping up in stores in Albany. 

 A clerk at the Shoe Diva at the Mall was paid with a phony $20 Saturday.

Owner Shania Green worries the problem will get worse during the holidays.

A phony $50 was passed at Jenny's Fashion on South Slappey last week.

Jenny's Fashions owner Tammy Hill says counterfeit money hurts small businesses. "It affects us very badly. It means we take a loss. And if you take too many losses, you have to go out of business."

K-Mart, and Subway also reported fake money over the weekend.
