SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Local restaurants and retailers are being warned about bogus bills being passed in Midtown Sacramento.
Last week, R-15 restaurant took $300 worth of fake $20 bills, and a few fake $100 bills as well.
Managers say the bills are surprisingly high quality, and the counterfeit detected pens don’t work.
“It’s mostly a bar thing; I think people come in and they want to do a quick transaction, get it done, and they think people aren’t paying attention,” says one R-15 employee.
R-15 has since added a new counterfeit detection system that uses black light to check for proper markings.
