    Counterfit--Fake $100 Bill

    Wife and I went to Our bank, Made a cash withdraw.. Went and rented a tuxedo, last Thursday.. Got a Phone call Monday Morning, The Tux shop said the $100 bill we paid with was counterfit.. So wife gets another 100 from bank and makes it right.. In the meanwhile, Tux shop's bank mailed the fake to the Secret Service, FBI, Whoever gets it..

    So she called our bank and tells them that the bill they gave us was a fake, Teller says " That cannot be possible, The bills pass a pen mark test before we give them out.. I say BS, He is trying to cover his Arse..

    So wife has no mean ness about her.. So I was fuming, I call all of the above.. Then after getting the run around, (I never had counterfit money before).. I call the FBI, They patch me to the Secret Service.. After a nice long chat, I am kinda told.. I should have made the Tux shop, or their bank prove to me it was a fake before paying another 100 to make it right.. But, The agent said " They get alot of money beleived to be fake, But the note will be legal and good, So they send it back"....

    Update! My bank says if it is fake, And we provide proof from the other bank, They will reimburse... They should add 50% for gas and my time taking care of their screw up if need be!!!!

    I need to get one of those pens and test them in front of the teller when I make a withdrawl I guess. That would suck!

    My son was Ring bearer in a wedding, So the whole Party got their rentals from the same shop! The groom had an all white suit, The Arse ripped out right before the wedding, So I drove home for needle and thread, Like Superman, I Saved the Day.. I told him to make sure and tell the tux shop, They would be getting a Bill from the tailor who fixed his britches..

    Well the counterfit marker pens, they ONLY WORK, on the new bills! All the old, (the ones before they made the print change), large denomination bills like $50's, and $100's the counterfit pen ink won't work.

    Once in a while I have had banks still have an older bill or two that is in with cashing my check the teller will give me.
    If I was President; I would take away welfare! I wouldn't make any bargains with foreign countries! I wouldn't take #@*& from any country! I would close the borders! I would get rid of taxes! I would make EVERYONE own at least 5 guns! I would ENFORCE Finders Keepers Law !!!!!!!!

    Heck Spart! It has been so long since I seen a $100 dollar bill or a $50 I might have forgotten what they look like!!!

    I might be lucky if I even get to SEE a $20 bill!

    odds are if the tux shop gets it back, you'll never hear a word.

    as TheHarleyMan2 said if it was an older bill the shop was probably wrong.

    My bank says if it proves fake, I show them proof from the other bank.. They will refund my $100.. I got a lil cranky at this.. I think they should give me $100 and they deal with the matter?

    Why didn't the tux shop check the bill when you gave it to them Why wait till after you left to let you know it was a fake..... Something not right with the tux shop.

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    Those pens are basically worthless. All they can do is tell whether it is real "money paper"

    Bleaching is a very common counterfeiting technique, the ink is bleached from a one or a five, and a 20, 50 or 100 is counterfeited from that paper.

    When the pen is run across, it reads "good" because it IS good....but not the denomination printed.
