It happened in front of "The Market," at Herndon and Marks in Northwest Fresno. Members of Troop 305 say a woman tried to purchase cookies with a $100 bill -- and when they refused to accept it, she went inside the store, where managers determined it was a fake.
"Our policy from the council is not to accept $100 dollar bills because there's a rash of counterfeit money around Fresno and Fresno County," said Rana Yamamura with Girl Scout Troop 305.
Earlier this month, the Girl Scouts received two counterfeit $100 bills at their store. Another woman tried to pass another bad bill at a cookie booth on the Northeast side. As a result, troop leaders received special training from the U.S. Secret Service, to help them spot the phony bills.
