If I had $100

The CBC reported on counterfeit $100 bills in Summerside, and included and image provided by Summerside Police.

Why, if they had what looks like a credible $100 bill, would a counterfeiter add blue and white text in Chinese?

And why would anyone accept such a bill?

Postscript: There are suggestions – here and here and here – that these are, in fact, not counterfeit bills at all, but rather specifically altered “training bills.”
