China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion has been launched af­ter a lo­cal cou­ple man­aged to suc­cess­fully de­posit $9,100 in fake US bank notes at a sav­ings bank in Suin­ing city. A woman, sur­named Li, and her male ac­com­plice de­posited the coun­ter­feit cur­rency at two sep­a­rate coun­ters in the bank be­fore trans­fer­ring the funds else­where via an ATM later in the day. The bank only no­ticed what had hap­pened hours later. The fake notes were ac­tu­ally pa­per of­fer­ings, some­times called ghost money, which are made to be burned in ven­er­a­tion of the dead.
