Nigerian banks and Bureau De Change money outlets never like to take US $100 bills. Now comes word of more fake ones circulating. 

A package flying into JFK from Ecuador had $65,200 worth of phony $100 bills, according to a press release from US Customs and Border Protection.

CBP found the counterfeit cash — 652 bills in total — taped inside multiple flower-patterned mats and a bright red shoe bag.

“Every day CBP officers are protecting the American public from various dangers,” said Robert Perez, director of CBP’s New York field operations.

“This seizure is a testament to the dedication our officers demonstrate daily in support of CBP’s mission.”
