Waterloo Police Try To Track Phony $100 Bills


Waterloo, Iowa (AP) – Waterloo police are having a hard time cracking down on the use of fake $100 bills meant to be props for movies and music videos at local stores.

There have been about a dozen cases in which the fake bills have been used in transactions over the past few months in Waterloo. At least one person has been arrested in connection with the fake money.

Normally, police would track the source of counterfeit money and shut down production. But these fake bills are marked “for motion picture use only,” so they’re legitimate to sell and process as props.

Although the fake bills look phony, they’re still slipping past inattentive clerks.
