This report from a Massachusetts news outlet illustrates a $1 bill altered into a counterfeit $100. -Editor
Freetown police are warning people to watch out for counterfeit bills after a phony $100 bill turned up at a local bank.
Police said the counterfeit money was actually a $1 bill made to look like a $100 bill.
Since the bill is still made of banknote paper, police warned businesses that counterfeit detector pens would show the phony $100 to be real money.
