SAN ANTONIO -- Crooks are getting crafty with counterfeit money. Often, counterfeit pens can't detect if bills are fake or real, since many bills are made on real currency paper.(from WOAI-TV)
"What they've done is they've taken a $10 bill and they've cut zeros off of another $10 bill to make it appear to be a $100," explained Rick Brozek, who owns a Schlotzsky's franchise in San Antonio.
This has been done before. But what's really strange is that the poor entrepreneur actually felt the need to point the following out to people old enough to hold jobs [the emphasis is mine]:
Brozek also has a tip he now trains all employees to follow: Always read the written text on the bill. If the writing doesn't match the number on the corner, it's fake.I weep for our future.
