Fake $10K bill raises eyebrows

Alert staffers at a Massachusetts bank weren't buying it when a woman came in claiming she had a $10,000 bill, according to this report:

Michael Gallagher, the bank's risk-management director, said it was an easy call spotting the counterfeit bill, given there are believed to be only about 300 that are still around.
"It is really unlikely we would see one in Lowell," he said. "It raised red flags very quickly. It was an easy catch."

The investigation is ongoing, and the woman hadn't been charged as of two days ago. Read the full story on the Lowell Sun web site.
