You Can Get Anything At Walmart, Even Counterfeit Money!

Counterfeit cash in the United States has become such a common problem that it is possible you could receive counterfeit money in your shift when you purchase something at major retailers such as Walmart.
Most large retailers don’t want to spend the time or money to properly train their employees in how to spot fake cash. Rather , they rely upon those marking pens which contain ink that supposedly changes color when marked on fake money.
The rationale the ink could change colour when indicated on a counterfeit note is that nearly all counterfeit notes are made of paper.
Money isn’t made of paper, so it’s made of fabric, a mix of 25% linen and 75% cotton. That is why cash feels how it does.
But do not realize that many of these pens will let you know the exact same thing when pronounced on normal newspaper - it’s real! A lot of these counterfeit note indicating pens do not work. Not many men and women think to examine them and therefore are oblivious of the.
So it is extremely possible a store clerk will require in fake money and put it in the till without realizing it is fake.
Of course, the clerk makes shift out of the same till, and provides the same fake money to an unsuspecting customer.
You may even have counterfeit money on your billfold at this time and not even know it.
Real or counterfeit - Would you tell the difference?
Most Americans don’t have a clue.
One of the simplest ways to tell is to sense it. Since real cash is printed on cloth, if you feel copier paper it is most likely fake.
College students aren’t the brightest people on Earth. They’ll buy the most innovative colour copiers and just make copies of a $10 note or a $20 note and try to pass them around town.

They forget that not only does it not feel like cloth, but each single note will have the specific same sequential number as the original.
If they fit, call the authorities immediately as one or they all are counterfeit.
You will find methods counterfeiters will use to get round the problem of it feeling like paper and the sequential numbers not being different.

All of a sudden these $1 notes turn into imitation $10 notes or fake $20 notes which not only feel like real notes but also have different serial numbers. They’ll also pass the fake pen test.
They then use these doctored notes to buy things for only a buck or 2 and the clerk provides them actual money back as change (supposing the clerk has not previously taken in counterfeit notes unknowingly, of course.)
