Money Machine Fraud
Have you noticed that the little strip in the side of a $20 bill has started
appearing in the
lower denominations, namely $10 and $5. The latter is
particularly useful. First, find a $5
bill that has the strip. Now use a
pair of very small tweezers to pull this strip out. It is
with a little work, it will happen. Now use some clear (not foggy) scotch
tape to tape this strip in approximatly the same location on the front side
side) of a $1 bill.
Go to a change machine that will still give you quaters, unless you
want tokens for the arcade…You’ll get $5 in quarters.
Handy, but how’s
it really profitable? Get 4 $5 bills and 4 $1’s. Pull the
strips out off all of them and tape
to the $1’s. Change them, and then wrap
the quarters in wrappers. Take them to the bank to get
changed into $20, and
then spend the $5’s elsewhere (99% of all stores don’t look for the
in $5’s and $10’s).
See, the change machines made in the last 4-5 years use
this strip to decide
what it just ate. If it sees the strip, it’s a $5, if no strip, then it’s
$1. CAUTION: THIS IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE AS WELL AS A FELONY. THIS IS COUNTER-
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AGAINST THIS.
(If you ever REALLY need the cash, tho, it’s there…)
