CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Federal investigators say a case of two women trying to pass off fake hundred dollar bills at a Camden County Walmart was not an isolated incident.

Investigators with the United States Secret Service say they're now investigating a counterfeit bill operation throughout the northeast.

The Camden County incident happened at the Cherry Hill Walmart Wednesday when investigators say an employee noticed something missing on the bills used by two women to purchase money orders.

The two women have since been arrested and charged.

Investigators say the fake bills look identical to real hundred dollar bills until you tilt them at an angle. That's when you'll notice the number in the right hand corner doesn't have the color shifting ink that real currency has.

The Secret Service website offers a detailed explanation of what's real and what's fake. You can read more and see examples by clicking here.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
