According to Freeport Police Department there has been a rash of fake $100 bills going around Pretzel City.

 The counterfeit $100 bills that are being used are bleached $10 bills that have been altered to look like a $100 bill. As a result, this faux money will pass the counterfeit detector pen test used by many businesses. -Freeport Police Department 

Here is how to check for the fakes:

Illuminate the thin vertical security strip with a UV light source. When illuminated the strips give off a different colored glow:

  • $5 glows blue
  • $10 glows orange
  • $20 glows green
  • $50 glows yellow
  • $100 glows red
