Man makes change for $50 bill, discovers it's a fake

A man who was asked to make change for a $50 bill in a Walmart parking lot later discovered that the bill he received was a phony, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office reported.

The victim, who was not identified, told officers that a man approached him outside the Super Walmart store, 5735 S. South Transit Road, Town of Lockport, on the evening of April 5 and asked for change for a $50 bill. He provided the change and did not suspect anything was wrong until he closely examined the bill later and realized that it was fake.

Sheriff's deputies said they intend to check store surveillance videos for possible clues to the identity of the thief.
