Posted

Counterfeit $100 bills have recently appeared in the City of Rome at two separate businesses, warned Rome Police.

The funny money is distinguished by Chinese letters on both the front and back, authorities said.

Such bills have been circulating around the country in recent years, police said, and recently turned up in Rome.

Police said they responded to complaints from two separate businesses in the past week.

Several counterfeit $100 bills were seized, police said. The investigation into the fake moola is continuing.

Any business that encounters the phony money is asked to immediately contact police. Anyone with information on the currency is asked to call the Detective Division at 315-337-7715.

All calls can be kept confidential.
