GIRL SCOUT STUCK WITH COUNTERFEIT $100 BILL

According to a report from Tenino, Washington, a shover of the
queer nailed a big target:

"A 10-year-old Girl Scout was excited when a woman asked to
buy 10 boxes of cookies from her Sunday, and she was more excited
to be paid with a $100 bill.

But her excitement turned to dismay when the Scout’s mother
realized the bill was a fake, and a day of raising money for
Scout trips ended with a valuable lesson.

“Sometimes you can’t trust just anybody,” the Scout said."

"Katie handed her mother the $100 and then passed the change
to the suspect. Lundquist said she immediately thought the
bill was fake.

She asked the Dave’s Market Place manager on duty to check,
and with a swipe of a counterfeit-detector pen, Lundquist’s
suspicion was confirmed. But by then, the suspect was gone."
