Chase Bank Counterfeit Bill Incident

Friday, September 24, 2010 - 5:49 AMChase Manhattan Bank - Details
Here's another example of why you should avoid $100 bills. This LA Times article described a case in which a man apparently received a counterfeit $100 bill at his credit union, and then when he deposited the $100 bill at Chase Bank, he almost lost the $100 even after Chase accepted the bill. The standard is that the last one to hold a counterfeit bill is the one who loses.

There are tons of counterfeit bills in other denominations as well. Perhaps the best way is to avoid all cash, and order dollar coins straight from the mint if necessary.
