LOWELL, Mass.—Staff at a Lowell bank naturally became suspicious when a woman came in with a $10,000 bill.
It didn't take long to determine the unusual bank note brought in Tuesday was a fake.
Michael Gallagher, risk management director at
The bank called police, who in turn notified the U.S. Secret Service, the agency that investigates counterfeiting.
Gallagher would not say what kind of transaction the woman attempted with the note.
The woman's name was not released because she has not been charged, but a police spokesman says she may have mental health issues.
