counter fit at Wal-Mart

Four things made Wal-Mart cashier Janice Sanders suspicious of the nervous lady who wanted to pay cash for $1,671.55 in purchases.

First, the greenback Alice Pike allegedly handed Sanders had a picture of the Statue of Liberty on it.

Second, third and fourth: printed below Lady Liberty were the words "One Million Dollars."
"The cashier saw the bill and realized something was up," said Almond Turner, the assistant police chief in Covington, Ga.
