Man Using Fake $100 Bills, ABC News Explains How You Can Too
For one man, it's all about the faux-benjamins.
According to ABC News, a man has recently been seen on security cameras using counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at stores in the Palmdale area. His technique is to pick out low-priced items, then distract the clerk by chatting with them as he hands over the phony bill.
How does he create those bills, you ask, and how might you do the same? ABC reports:
The bills were washed and reprinted as $100 bills. This technique in which counterfeiters take real $5 bills and wash them to reprint them is common because it can't be detected by counterfeit pens, according to officials.
