    Cops Looking For $1 Million Bill Counterfeiter

    Hey, buddy. Got change for a million?Police in southern Idaho are looking for someone trying to pass phony $1 million bills.

    Officers in Twin Falls said the counterfeits are high quality except for one big problem. The U.S. Treasury never issued a 1 million bill.

    The largest domination bill ever produced was the $100,000 gold certificate issued in the mid 1930's. But it was only used for transactions between Federal Reserve Banks and never released for general circulation.

    As for the phony $1 million note, police said it looks like it's based on a 1920s dollar bill. Police haven't made any busts yet in the funny money case.
