The incidents have been occurring over the past month, with the suspect entering different stores and using fake cash to put money onto online cards.

The scheme involves the woman presenting counterfeit currency to store employees, who then transfer the supposed value onto digital payment cards.

This method allows the suspect to convert fake physical money into usable digital funds.

MSP has released surveillance photos of the woman, hoping that members of the public may recognize her and provide information leading to her identification.

The investigation extends beyond Calhoun County, as authorities believe the suspect may have been active in other parts of West Michigan as well.

Law enforcement is working to determine the full extent of the fraudulent activities and the total amount of counterfeit money involved.

Businesses in Southwest Michigan are being advised to be vigilant when accepting cash payments, particularly when customers request to load money onto online cards.
