There's counterfeit money cases...and then there's this. The Auburn Police Department took to their Facebook page on Monday to share an incident that happened at a local Burger King involving a Whopper and some seriously fake money.

Someone driving a dark colored sedan ordered a Whopper at the drive-thru at the Burger King location on Center Street. When they attempted to pay for it at the window, the BK employee happened to notice that the $20 bill handed over to them looked a little odd. The dead giveaway? It says MOTION PICTURE PURPOSES not only on the front, but on the back as well.

The employee told the man in the sedan that the money could not be accepted as payment, and that is when the man sped off. Police are now on the search for the counterfeiter in case they have a larger stash of motion picture money they're attempting to use to dupe other people.
