Sheriff: Watch out for counterfeit $100 bills

cwinston@thestate.comFebruary 19, 2014 

A breakout of counterfeit $100 bills in Kershaw County led the Sheriff's Office to issue a warning on Wednesday.

The KCSO said several fake bills have been given to businesses in Camden and Elgin in recent days.

All bills, according to a release from the sheriff's office, are in the 1993 series with the same serial number: A09096251A.

"They have an older, weathered look and are very difficult to spot to the untrained eye. A counterfeit detection marking pen will not work on these bills," the release said.
