BILLION DOLLAR NOTE SCAMMER SENTENCED

"A man, who authorities linked to the discovery of phony currency
in billion-dollar denominations, was sentenced Wednesday in Los Angeles
to 33 months in prison.

Tekle Zigetta, 45, pleaded guilty in March to three federal counts,
including currency smuggling, for trying to bring $37,000 in real money
into the United States on a flight from South Korea in 2002.

In addition to the $37,000, customs agents at Los Angeles International
Airport found that Zigetta was carrying a total of $200,000 in
counterfeit currency, along with a document mentioning "billion-dollar"
bills, prosecutors allege."
