If your hundred dollar bill has the words “for motion picture use only” on it, it may not be legal tender.
[Grand Forks Police Lt. Brett A.] Johnson said that law enforcement in the region has recovered several of the counterfeit $100 bills in recent weeks. “We would like to remind merchants to be vigilant when taking in cash and encourage them to closely examine all currency, especially $100 bills,” Johnson said.
Police in Duluth said in a statement that these bills are often passed in settings that “divert a person’s attention,” such as a busy line at the grocery store or restaurant.
