MYRTLE BEACH — A pregnant woman here called police when she discovered that the money her boyfriend had given her to pay for medical bills was counterfeit.
The woman said the suspect gave her four $20 bills on Aug. 22 to help with costs, but she didn’t notice they were fake until Monday. She told police that when the bills became wet, the ink started to change color.
The officer responding also noticed that all the bills had the same serial number.
The fake money was entered into evidence as the investigation continues. No arrests have been made.
