2. It's hard to believe anyone would actually insert a foreign language.




Unless it is meant to be a clumsy diversion.

No Korea? Cuba? Almost any ME country?

3. If you look at the photo the Chinese characters are on top of the bill printing

As if they were written or stamped on in white ink. I couldn't put the photo into my OP but there is a very good photo showing both sides of the counterfeit bills.

4. All the same serial number too.



They could only pass one at a time if they had any sense.
