Falling for the "Fake Money" trick

A thief bashed the plastic glass inside the Drop-A-Note donation box in the Kentucky Theatre's lobby to get to the $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills.

But all they probably got were fistfuls of fake bills layered inside to hide the real cash.

The president of a theater project group who is using the proceeds from the box says "It's sad when idiots can't tell fake money from the real thing."

He says the fake bills were black and white and didn't even have serial numbers.

The thief made off with little or no money because the box had been emptied that weekend.
