A man told police Thursday he sold a PlayStation 4, games and two controllers for about $300. The only problem was the bills were marked “For Motion Picture Purposes,” according to a police report.

The bills were fake, prompting police to open a forgery report.

Police said the transaction occurred in the 100 block of South Loop 288. The victim told police he did not take a close look at the bills until he returned home, the report states. Police said the man did not know how to get a hold of the suspect because they used a buy-sell-trade phone application called letgo.
