Counterfeit 101

Idabel police investigated a couple using three counterfeit $100 bills to purchase items at a local store. The bills had a watermark of Abraham Lincoln's face and security tape from a $5 bill instead of Benjamin Franklin's face and a USA hundred security thread.
Lesson #1
This is Abraham Lincoln, he goes on a five dollar bill.
This is Benjamin Franklin, he goes on a one hundred dollar bill.

A separate report of a counterfeit $20 bill being passed at another business in Idabel was also taken. In this case the counterfeit bill was of much worse quality than the other case, as it had ink running down the front of the bill.

Let the ink dry on your counterfeit money before you go spend it.
