    Shared the find to some of my fathers clients and they said they manage a hotel in town. Recently while depositing their payroll they were given back a counterfeit $20. Someone’s rolling out fake money

    If it was photo copied there will be tiny yellow dots that are the serial number to the printer that printed it, you need a loop to see them, I worked for Xerox for 7 years repairing commercial printers...

    Here’s a counterfeit $100 I got working at CVS about 10 yrs ago. Guy tried to buy a pack of gum with it in the pharmacy (to get the $99 in real money back). I thought it looked a little light on the ink. I told him it was fake & he left it and ran.
    It’s made from a real $5 bill that was bleached out and printed over. Notice the “FIVE” sexy strip and profile of Lincoln in the light. It has the colored threads woven in the paper & everything- like I said, made from a real bill. A pretty dang good fake.
    I wrote “counterfeit” on it with a Sharpie so I would never accidentally spend it.

    I was in a 7-11 a month back or so.
    Some guy tried buying beer with a 100$ bill. The safe rejected it and the clerk said that it must be fake and they can't accept it.
    Guy got pissed, threw it down on the floor and left.
    I looked at the clerk and then picked up the bill.
    1993 series.
    Took it to the local bank.
    Real as real can be.
    I feel bad for the guy because he was told it was fake..at the same time, do your homework.

    Absolutely ! I thought when a Place determines you handed them a Counterfeit they get to Keep it.
    I Figure if that ever happens to me, I'd insist on it Back or a Receipt.
    Along with a Promise of a visit from Secret Service Confirming in Person, I was not just Ripped off by an uneducated or Crooked Clerk.

    I remember when that was on the news.
    I can't believe he was arrested. Hopefully he lawyered up!
