A fascinating story came out in the past year about a guy named Frank Bourassa from Canada who printer approximately 250 million in fake U.S. money over a few years.

After a one-month investigation, Abilene police have arrested 10 people in connection with a counterfeit money ring. Six of them have been charged with third-degree felony forgery.
