The Belize Police Department wishes to inform the general public and in particular the business sector to be on the lookout for counterfeit currency of 20, 50, and 100 dollar bills in US denominations. Persons doing business at night are especially vulnerable and the necessary checks to ascertain the authenticity of the notes is advised.

A co-worker recently had an incident receiving a counterfeit $10 in change from a business. In the U.S. not Belize. The local police department pointed her to this website for more information on how to spot fake money.

Fairly recently (in the US), I had a very fake feeling dollar bill that I got as change. I figured it had to be real, since who would counterfeit a dollar? I tried using it in several self-pay machines at grocery stores and it always spit it back. I passed it on as a tip I think. I should have entered it into "Where's George" instead.

Isle, thanks for the website. This is good info (plus buying one of those marker pens that test bills would be a good investment.
