    I wonder how much of it is circulating in this country and if I ever touched it.

    Now with the new apple wallet thingy, no more counterfeits.

    I got a counterfeit $5 bill (USD) in Mexico once.

    Why anyone would bother to counterfeit such a small bill is beyond me. Counterfeit $20, $50 and $100 bills!

    I got a fake 10 bill from Amoeba records once, I didn't notice it and then went to Carls Jr and they did. Made me feel like a common criminal.

    I got in trouble at Ceasar's Palace for using a fake hundo.

    I didn't know it was fake. I had bought coke earlier in the night and gave the dealer change for a few hundred like a dope. A fake one was mixed in. :facepalm:

    The printing was ok, but the color was kind of a bright army green... Anyone who'd ever seen an American dollar bill would have known it was a phony ... It was a Friday, too.. So I bet she had to spend the weekend in the clink

    I used to work at Best Buy back in the day and we used to get counterfeit bills every so often. The authorities don't take that shit lightly either and the Secret Service was in the store a couple of times to review the video.

    I saw a guy with $3k in counterfeit $100 bills in the mid '90s.

    He was a 20 something Europian tourist visiting SF, Ca. He was scammed exchanging his money before his big USA trip. The bills looked real, but didn't pass the counterfeit pen test. He was detained, the bills were confiscated, and he was let go by the police. The dude was seriously bummed of course.

    Couple years ago I saw some counterfeit $50s that were floating around NYC. 2 different people showed em to me. Perfect except for no watermark.

    Yeah, I'll pas on waving my phone to pay for shit. I clear history, cookies and cache after I check my balance on my phone. I also refuse to put my bank's app on it.

    Most counterfeit US currency is in circulation in Europe and Asia.

    A guy dropped off 5 $100 dollar billz once as a down payment for a pickup I was selling....then disappeared, he was all the way from Brooklyn...I asked a relative I know who does a lot of shady dealings what he thought and he said it was probably counterfeit....Anyway, I sold the truck to someone else and the guy called me back a few months later and told me he had some trouble with the law and wanted to know if I could give him 500 back....I said "sure, I still have your $$$ in an envelope, come get it" He never came back, so I'm assuming he didn't want the money he gave me...I slowly circulated it all back into the system with no problems...oh well

    Also Pro tip:

    If you're ever selling shit off craigslist and Russian guys show up at your house with cash, make them ride down to the local quickie mart with you and have the cashier use his magic marker and experience to tell you if it's real...I have done this myself
