Officials Warn To Be On Lookout For Fake $100 Bills

BOONE, NC — Police are warning people and businesses to be on the lookout for new fake $100 bills that have begun circulating.Fake $100 bill

Police say the most obvious clue is “For Motion Picture Use Only” being printed where it would normally say “United States Of America.” The bill also will have a blue strip printed on the surface, no light image of Benjamin Franklin on the right, and the colored ink well and number “100” printed on the front and back will not change from orange to green when the bill changes positions. The bill may also have a yellow pen mark on the front to give the illusion that it has already been tested for authenticity.

If you come across one of these bills please contact Boone Police Department or your local law enforcement.
