Whether it's a one hundred dollar bill or a ten dollar bill, officials said the bogus bill won't last in a cash register for long.
“One way or the other wherever the note is passed, however it's passed, it will make it's way to secret service and we'll look into it ,” said Michael Hand at the Secret Service.
If you think you’ve received a fake bill, the ink looks smudges or it feels like the texture has been altered contact law enforcement immediately. The Secret Service tells us passing fake money is a federal crime punishable by a fine and or up to 15 years of jail time.
Passing fake bills also means you or the business that received the cash is out the money.
