Its possible, I woiuld think they would have to contact the FBI though. If you had multiple deposits with fake money then maybe YOU are the one making bogus bills.

No, THEY won't pursue an investigation, they'll turn if over to the Secret Service to do that. While the Secret Service are primarily responsible for protecting the president and other national leaders, they also, for some reason, are responsible for investigating crimes regarding counterfeit money.

I'm not sure. How could you prove that a customer gave it to you? How could prove that you aren't the source? Perhaps if you have an anti counterfeit policy maybe the bank could help you out. It's possible it goes under risk assessment and is considered a loss - just as a theft of merchandise would be. My guess is it's deducted at the end of the tax year and written off as a loss.

Of course they won't and why should they? It isn't the bank's fault that someone accepted counterfault money.
Have a nice day.

what do you mean, "IF"? Our entire economy has been run on counterfeit money since 1961, when President Kennedy took away our Silver Certificates, and replaced them with Monop...uh, excuse me, "Federal Reserve Notes"!!!

If they recognized the bill when you turned it in, I would expect them to take your name and furnish it to the feds so that they could either: beat a confession out of you, or: try to trace the bill back to the source by asking you nicely where it came from.

Oh, I imagine they would because they'd have to trace the money somehow. I don't see why they would reimburse anyone if the money is counterfeit because that's illegal. The SEC would have a field day with that, and whomever did the transaction could probably do some time.
