Authorities: Counterfeit cash circulating in southern Idaho

By  | 

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Police in the southern Idaho city of Pocatello say counterfeit $100 bills are being passed at local businesses.

The bills are sold online as novelty items, and they include Chinese characters written in pink — a feature not found on real $100 bills.

Police say businesses should train their employees to examine money carefully. If someone tries to use a bill that appears to be phony, authorities urge the businesses to call police.
