BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Rodolfo "Rodgee" Cao received a counterfeit $20 bill printed "Motion Picture Use Only" at his Spice Thai Restaurant on Belleville Ave Bloomfield. 

According to Cao, on Nov.19, during the dinner rush, he gave one of his kitchen staff money from the register to reimburse him for suppliers he had purchased earlier in the day. The next morning that same staff member used one of the twenty dollar bills to purchase coffee and was told that the bill was counterfeit.

Upon examination of the bill the words "Motion Picture Use Only" were on the back side of the bill. Cao said "When it is busy at the restaurant, there's not much time to check or be on the lookout for something like this. It is much easier to check a $50 or a $100.
