Rhode Island Man Busted For Trying To Pass Off Lincolns For Benjamins
It took a couple of days, but finally someone noticed that Abraham Lincoln’s face belongs on $5 bills, not on $100 bills. Police say 29-year-old Dana Leland used counterfeit $100 bills to buy things at the North Attleboro Target store. As a matter of fact, Leland allegedly used the fake bills on three consecutive days to by merchandise.
But those benjamins were missing the portrait of Benjamin Franklin, and instead displayed Lincoln’s face. Leland, who lives in central Falls, R.I., was held on $1,000 bail.
