Washington Island merchants should be on the lookout for fake $100 bills. Washington Island Police received a complaint from a business that a counterfeit bill was being circulated around the community. Police Chief Tyler McGrane explains what people should do to make sure any currency is authentic.
McGrane says the fake $100 bill had “For Motion Picture Use Only” on the front and back of the Benjamin Franklin. You can see a picture of the fake $100 bill online with this story.

We have received a complaint involving $100 bills circulating that are counterfeit and marked “For Motion Picture Use Only”. The bills look authentic but lack the interior strip and watermarks. Everyone especially local merchants should be careful and alert for these bills.
