Counterfeit $100's being passed in Cedar Rapids

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The Cedar Rapids police department says retailers have been victimized by counterfeit bills.

Since Saturday, police say they have received four reports of counterfeit $100 bills.

Authorities say in all four cases, the $100 was a real currency note.

However, it was a $5 bill altered to look like a $100.

When the bill is held to a light, Abraham Lincoln's face and the word "five" is seen in the hidden watermark.
