    R.I. restaurants to require form before accepting $100s

    Customers who want to pay with a $100 bill at a Rhode Island chain of restaurants will now have to fill out a form. All four locations of Gregg’s will now require a name, phone number, and driver’s license number whenever someone pays with a $100 bill. Owner Bob Bacon told WPRI-TV that the restaurants have received around a half dozen fake $100 bills in the last few months. He said the policy is not about getting restitution, but rather it is about creating a paper trail so they can track down whoever is making the fake bills.
