Counterfeit

We recently received a counterfeit $100 bill at our church yard sale.  I hope everyone will be especially aware of this.  We were told by our bank but we now have a detection pen which we plan to use on all bills at our sales.  Virginia Syverson, IB United Methodist Church

I saw two of the $100 bills in IB too. They looked VERY real except for the thin strip with $100 printed several times was too noticeable when it should be hard to see, and the paper didn't feel quite right - almost too new. Use the pen, they don't pass the pen test... But also be aware there are fake $20's & $100's bills using real 'bleached' $5 bills - that pass the pen test - but don't look as good.
