Woman Tries to Use Prop Movie Money to Buy Jar of Mayo

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Cheektowaga Police say a cashier`s suspicions were confirmed when a woman tried to pay for jars of mayonnaise with fake money on Wednesday.

Amherst resident Rinet Fox, 47, was purchasing the jars at Restaurant Depot when the cashier thought something was not right about her currency.

After noticing that the $100 bill Fox allegedly tried to use felt unauthentic, the cashier then observed it further to find the words, `For Motion Picture Use Only` written on it, according to police.

Officers and the U.S. Secret Service were notified, and Fox was subsequently charged with possession of a forged instrument. Following arraignment, she was released on her own recognizance."


I`ve worked as a cashier, and I rarely saw a $100 bill; I scrutinized large denomination bills very carefully before I accepted them. Fox should have realized that a $100 bill with the words "For Motion Picture Use Only" would not cut the mustard when used to buy a jar of mayo.

I hope Fox was allowed to keep the jar of mayo, she will need it for all those bologna sandwiches they serve in jail.

It`s all about the Benjamins baby, just make sure they are the genuine article.
