State Police warn of counterfeit $100 bills

PIKEVILLE, Ky. –  Kentucky State Police are asking people to be on the lookout for counterfeit 100 dollar bills that may be circulating in our area.  On Thursday, detectives at Post 9 opened an investigation after a forged 100 dollar bill was discovered. The bill closely resembles a $100.00 bill but does not have a series number or any security features. Troopers say the paper also has a different feel than standard currency. But, the biggest identifying feature is that the bill also has small Chinese writing on the back which appears to be stamped on the bill.
If anyone comes in contact with this or any other bills that appear to be counterfeit, they are urged to call Kentucky State Police Post 9 at 606-433-7711.
