Niagara Falls deliveryman given counterfeit $100 bill

NIAGARA FALLS – A deliveryman was given a counterfeit $100 bill Friday after he made a food delivery to a Monroe Avenue address, which turned out to be an abandoned house.

Police said the employee of Hong Kong Kitchen, a Pine Avenue restaurant, delivered a $23 food order shortly before 2 p.m.

Two men standing outside the address when the deliveryman arrived paid for the order with the bogus $100 bill and received change, according to a police report.

When the deliveryman returned to the address, he realized that the property was an abandoned house, police said.
