GREENSBURG, Pa. - A store clerk at a woman's clothing store was fooled by a fake $200 bill, despite several dead giveaways on the currency including President Bush's picture and the serial number DUBYA4U2001.
Police on Wednesday charged Deborah Trautwine, 51, with theft by deception for reportedly passing the bogus bill at the Fashion Bug store on Aug. 22.
There is no such denomination, with or without Bush's picture.
Police didn't say how much change the clerk handed over to the woman.
In addition to Bush's picture, the bill didn't bear the signature of the secretary of the Treasury. Instead, it was "signed" by Ronald Reagan, whose title was "Political Mentor" and by Bush's father, who is listed as "Campaign Advisor and Mentor."
The back of the bill was even goofier.
It depicted the White House with several signs erected on the lawn, including those reading "We Like Broccoli" and "USA Deserves A Tax Cut."
A police spokesman didn't have details on how the bill was traced to Trautwine.
