U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials revealed seizing $900,000 in counterfeit cash – all of it in singles.

The dollar bills were discovered in December at the International Falls Port of Entry in Minnesota in a rail shipment originating from China.

An investigation found 45 cartons filled with singles, which were confirmed to be fake by the Secret Service.

“CBP officers strive every day to protect the United States from a variety of threats,” said Jason Schmelz, a CBP port director, in a statement. “Those threats don’t always come in the form of terrorists or narcotics, but also in the form of counterfeit currency and other goods that have the potential to harm the economy of the United States.”
