  • If you per chance end up getting some hundred dollar bills, Check the BACK side of them for some chinese language and some other fake stuff on them. They are going around here from what I was shown today at HOME DEPOT. I live in the Treasure Valley of Idaho....Boise, Nampa, Caldwell....and they showed me what to look for.

  • Spent one last night that I thought looked kind of funny. Of course the lighting was weird and I was a bit drunk so I might have been seeing things. Got my change either way so oh well.

  • I'm not familiar with the types of fakes you're talking about fan80, since you didn't describe them and I haven't seen them, but you can catch probably 80%+ of fake bills by doing two things. All that's required is a little bit of familiarity with the bills themselves.

    1) Use your thumbnail to feel the person's jacket on the face of the bill. It should be textured and your thumbnail will almost catch on them. All current design $50's and $100's are pretty much unmistakable on this.

    2) Hold the bill up to the light to make sure there are no different watermarks/values or the wrong face shown. There are strips within the bill that will say "USA Ten" or "USA 5," etc. depending on the denomination of the bill.

    In my experience in the banking world, the most common fakes we will see are "washed" $5 bills. Fraudsters will take the old $5 design and beat the living daylights out of them, literally wash them to make as much of the ink and texture go away, and then they print over them. Sometimes you'll see just a hint of the old Lincoln face when you hold them up to the light or you'll see other markers that are out of place for a $20, $50 or $100 bill. They're usually so beat up, soft and flaccid (lul) that you should immediately be tipped off on it.

    Fake cash is usually introduced via spending at businesses and then get caught by a bank when the cash is (attempted to be) deposited. People will buy a $5 coffee with a fake $50 and they just made $45 if the minimum wage barista doesn't catch it.

    Just my $.02.

    A friend in Portland area told me that they are dropping 50s there too.

    The back of the bill on the hunny that I saw on picture had the Chinese lingo on the right side within the greenery, not on the edge. Was also mentioned multiple marks on the left side somewhere...I just glanced at it. All on the back I think. And that is of course with the building upright on the back.

  • Very interesting. I no longer work in a branch or handle cash anymore.

    Do the bills looks like the old $100 design or the current design (blue bill)?

    You nailed it.
    At my old job I came across counterfeit 5’s and 10’s theyd use as tester bills to see if they could be easily passed and then they’d try the 20’s, 50’s and 100’s if successful.

    We had the counterfeit pen that would work on all bills except the bleached ones they’d reprint over.

    Also had the black light where the strip would glow a certain color, each denomination had a different color.


    With the color shifting ink, feel of the paper, feel of raised print, strips, and watermarks it fairly easy to spot fakes if you are paying attention. ....and don’t trust all banks and casinos, have known folks that have gotten paid out from these to places only to find they got a fake in their money back.

  • I've always thought the perfect place to ged rid of counterfeit money would be in a nightclub, where it is either dark or full of flashing lights, bar staff run off their feet, etc - who would possibly have time to notice anything but the worst quality fake?
