Albany Police discover more counterfeit 100-dollar bills passed at 6 Albany businesses, and they expect more victims to come forward in coming days.

Check out this video.

It's from the Woodall's on North Slappey about 5:10 Wednesday afternoon.  And it shows a man using a counterfeit 100 dollar bill to buy merchandise.

Wednesday night we told you about two men who spent phoney 100's at the east Albany Walmart not long before that.

The bills are real fives that have been altered to look like 100-dollar bills.

They pass the marking pen test, but if you hold them up to the light you can still see 5-dollar markings.

Woodall's clerks are on guard.

Woodall Stores Owner Wright Woodall said  "They've all been notified. They have and they are being more cautious. And looking and holding the bills up and marking them."

Fake 100s were also passed at O'Reilly's Auto Parts in East Albany, Murphy's Oil in East Albany, Rite Aid in East Albany, and Publix Supermarket.

This is a picture of the man who passed the money at Woodall's.

He drove off in a White Chevrolet Caprice.

If you have information on any of the cases,  call crime stoppers at 436-tips.
