A man has been jailed for trying to buy lotto tickets with movie money.
According to the WFLA, Timothy Zimmerman tried to buy scratch-off tickets with a $100 bill that had the words "for motion picture use only" on it, assuming it was used as a prop in a film.
The man, who is from Florida, was released on $2,000 bond.
According to the United States Department of Treasury, an estimated $70 million in counterfeit bills are in circulation equalling to approximately 1 note in counterfeits for every 10,000 in genuine currency.
In the United States, the $20 bill is the most frequently counterfeited note.
