(KMOV) – St. Louis Mills in Hazelwood is the sixth and latest mall to get hit by counterfeiters passing off fake dollar bills.
The counterfeiters passed off five phony $100 bills.
Police have since worked with store clerks to educate and raise awareness so they can be ready if the crooks return.
Some stores check the bill’s authenticity by illuminating it under black lights to see the security strip.
Police are now trying to find the suspect in this case.
