STAUNTON, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

Authorities have identified and refused five counterfeit bills in varying denominations at First National Bank in Staunton.

The bills are printed in every denomination. The upper right-hand corner has a double back line. The front left and back right of the bills have Chinese symbols on them.

These bills are used in China for training purposes for international bank tellers learning count U.S. currency.

The Chinese lettering translates to “Bank Training Money”.

Officials say the bills that were refused had a lot of wear and tear where the person who passed the bills tried to rub off or disguise the Chinese symbols.
