New Bedford Delivery Driver Fooled by Fake Cash
NEW BEDFORD - New Bedford Police are once again reminding the public to take a closer look at their cash during a transaction after a delivery driver was duped by a counterfeit $100 bill.
A delivery driver for Sun Kitchen on Belleville Avenue delivered a $30.96 order to an Acushnet Avenue address Tuesday night. The customer paid with what appeared to be a $100 bill, with the delivery driver handing back $60.
When the employee returned to the restaurant, he noticed the $100 bill was a fake, with the words "For Motion Picture Use Only" printed on it.
Police have received several complaints over similar counterfeit bills being circulated over the past few months.
Police are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call New Bedford Police at 508-991-6350 or the anonymous tip line at 508-992-7463 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
