Counterfeit bills pumping into local cash registers

CLEVELAND -- Some restaurants in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood have seen $50 bills come into their drawers, but something wasn't quite right.

"If you hold the fifty up to the light, you see the watermark image of Abraham Lincoln. Yes, Grant's face is on the bill, but someone bleached a five and made it look like a 50," said Sherman DeLozier -- owner of restaurants The South Side and Press in Tremont.

In addition to someone turning fives into fifties, the U.S. Secret Service Cleveland Field Office issued fresh warnings Tuesday about counterfeit $100 bills.

Check out this warning notice issued by the feds to see if your $100 bill is bogus.
