Tell the person you got it from to give you a real one.
Always check. Use common sense especially on a high denomination. Anything on it such as chinese characters is a big giveaway of a fake note.
Do you know how to check the watermark?
Does the Blue security strip look printed on or raised as it is supposed to be?
Aqua Net, White Rain, and other hairsprays easily fool the pen.
IMHO the best way to tell if a note is counterfeit is the texture.
Just because you searched and could not find an exact match doesn't mean anything, other than you didn't search hard enough
.... 30 seconds ..
And spray starch can fool it the other way and make the pen say a genuine note is fake.
maybe someone simply wrote with a red marker on the bills.
If you got it at a credit union it is probably fine.
I get bills with all sorts of things written on them
have you ever see the "Where's George" thing for $1 bills ?
What do you think was wrong with the front of the bills?
You can scan the front of the bills by turning them over.
And if they worried you maybe go back and have them replace it with unwritten on bills.
Do you have pictures that you can post ?
Also, you should create your own thread.
but just in case you are curious ....
FYI, I don't know if that constellation thing above is accurate or not.
@Todd bordon. I think I'd ask a moderator to change your user name as there is another Todd borden, spelled with an e, on this forum. Could get confusing.
Spend them. They were/are part of a campaign to irritate never Trumpers.
@Todd bordon back to your bill. It is a Chinese printed 100 dollar bill that is used to train Chinese tellers, so it is NOT real and you shouldn't try to spend it. I hope you weren't given it as a real $100 bill.
If it is a fake bill, I seriously doubt that it wasn't recognized at the Credit Union,
and then given to you as real. They can get in so much trouble for that, it's not
worth "saving" $100.
