HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV)-- Many protections are in place on American bills, and ones from around the world.

For example, this five dollar Canadian bill uses many more colors in the printing than we're used to.

For the last 15-years, sophisticated $100 U.S. bills are believed to have flooded into the country from Israel.

Court documents show the bust was made just as counterfeiters were starting to print the fake bills in New Jersey.

Criminals would apparently pay about 40 percent of the face value of the bills for a '10 stack,' or $10,000
