    A Naive/Unobservant Cashier? Or an aider & abetter?

    See pic of $$$ at link.

    "When a movie or TV show needs stacks of cash for a scene, they don’t usually withdraw millions from the bank and hope no one walks away with it. Instead, they use prop money that will pass for the real thing on camera, but that any cashier with eyes would immediately notice is fake. So when some Walmart shoppers in Georgia managed to buy $1,000 of stuff with fake movie money, police were suspicious about the cashier’s involvement."

    "Bills" were "clearly marked as for “Motion Picture Use Only” on both the front and the back.".

    Any real cashier would have noticed that. You are held responsible if you accept counterfeit money. So cashiers do look at the bills as they put them in the drawer.
