Police warn of counterfeiting scheme

Stamford police are investigating after they say counterfeit money was used at the Stamford Town Center Mall.



Police say they have arrested a woman for passing fake $100 bills. 



They say the counterfeiters bleached $1 bills, then reprinted them as $100 bills.



Officers say the bills are difficult to detect because they are printed on real currency paper.
