If you want to be a good counterfeiter, you need to know whose portrait is on what denomination–just ask Dana T. Leland of Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The 29-year-old Leland was arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills for three days at a Route 1 Target, according to a Sun Chronicle report today.

Unfortunately for Leland, the phony money he used to by small items like socks, so he would get real money change, had the wrong portrait on them.

The bills he passed had Lincoln’s portrait on them, when actual $100 bills have Benjamin Franklin’s face on the front. Lincoln’s portrait appears on $5 bills.

Leland’s lawyer said her client has struggled with drug and alcohol problems and untreated mental health issues, and had a relapse.

The Chronicle reports that authorities say has a record of similar crimes in Rhode Island, was ordered held on $1,000 cash bail or $10,000 surety after pleading innocent to three counts each of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.

Leland is due back in court Dec. 11.
