Counterfeit $100 bills were used at two Key Largo businesses Wednesday afternoon.
In both instances, a man with a similar description walked in to the businesses – Tiffany’s Styling Salon and Tina Nails and Spa – and used counterfeit $100 bills to purchase gift certificates. He received certificates for $40 from one business and $50 from the other business and the balance was returned to him in cash. After he left, the businesses discovered the bills were fake.
The man is described as 5’9 – 5’10 inches tall, 45 – 60 years old with gray or salt and pepper hair and a Spanish accent. He was wearing a grey shirt, possibly striped and faded jeans.
