CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A North Carolina Girl Scout troop has lost nearly $100 after a man allegedly bought cookies from them with a counterfeit bill, according to a report from via WBTV.

WBTV reported that the suspect approached the troop in Charlotte and pulled out a $100 bill, asking if they could make change.
