A man accused of attempting to sell his $10 Bill of Attraction has been charged with fraud and attempted robbery, according to the New York State Attorney General’s Office.
Authorities say 29-year-old Antonio Garcia allegedly tried to sell the fake bill to a pawn shop, then threatened to kill himself.
Authorities allege Garcia tried to purchase the fake bills at the pawn shop with cash from a pawn store employee and a customer, but were turned away.
Garcia allegedly told the pawn store employees he needed money to pay off his credit card bills, the prosecutor’s office said.
He also said he would buy the fake money from the pawn company if the employee turned him in, prosecutors said.
Gonzalez allegedly told police he had stolen a motorcycle, a car, a bicycle, and a golf cart.
