Its all about the Benjamins.
An international counterfeiting ring has been pumping millions of dollars in phony $100 bills into New York and other cities in the metropolitan area over the past several years, forcing the Secret Service to step up its operation to shut it down, sources told "On The Inside."
Federal officials are tracking the mules who smuggle bogus bills into the country and distributing an alert to New York businesses, banks and security industry personnel that teaches how to detect the fake C-notes, a copy of which DNAinfo New York obtained.
[snip]The Secret Service warning says the bills contain a set of five different serial numbers and have two black 7s above the last zero on the lower right-hand corner, above the 100 mark on the back of the bill.

Is this Satire? Or did they finally go after the federal reserve????
Don’t mind the maggets...
Is there a difference in value between the counterfeit and the authorized bills?
My brains been battered, all over....Manhattan. Good stuff from the Stones.
Probably my favorite Stones song, they showed the punks how it’s done.
Folks rest easy. These are simply $100 dollar bills coming in to do the work that U. S. $100 dollar bills have chosen not to do.
These $100 bills can be used to pay for the education, E.R. visits, the housing subsidies, the low income subsidies, and the many more things foreign nationals need in the U. S., so we should be thankful for that.
These $100 bills help the economy.
These $100 bills are one of Gods blessings too.
These $100 bills are good $100 bills, and they should never be referred to with demeaning words like, illegal, counterfeit, or destructive.
And besides, its not these $100 bills fault that the nation they came from valued them so little, that they could only find worth by sneaking into the United States and working here.
And try to remember, all the little $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, and $50 dollar bills in your pocket these $100s birth in the U. S. each year, in change. They are legal, because they were printed on U. S. soil.
You cant send those $100 bills home and leave their offspring here.
What’s the problem? We already have an international ring pumping phony money into out economy; it’s called the Federal Reserve.
This may win the prize for the stupidest question of the day, but why don’t the counterfeiters just use the same serial numbers, etc, as a REAL $100 bill? They would then be harder to identify.
I can see a lot of SuperBowl street walkers whipping out their yellow magic markers checking bills before they allow the clients to check in!!!!
Meaning the recipients are too STUPID to recognize even ONE of the multiple security features.
Couldn't have happened to a better place, imho.
If I had one of these bills, I sure as heck wouldn't turn it in and lose the value. I'd pass it on and let the next sucker take the loss......
Do the have Obummers picture on them?
Those are the $300 bills.
What’s a hundred dollar bill?
