17 Show Me The Money
A man in North Carolina wanted by the Police for a bogus $200 bill. He handed the bill at a Food Lion grocery store for his groceries that were worth $150. The man walked out with the groceries and $50 in change.
The bogus bill (the U.S. Mint does not print a $200 bill) bore the image of President George W. Bush and White
House on the back. It also bore slogans such as ‘We like broccoli’, ‘We like ice cream’, ‘No more scandals’, ‘USA deserves a tax cut’.
Another attempt was made in the same state in August, a man paid his groceries at a convenience store with the fake $200 bill, but he was arrested later on. Michael Harris was jailed one night under $2,500 bond. Investigators said that Harris is not the same person who passed the bogus bill at the Food Lion store.
On the lighter note, there is one site where people can purchase the fake bills from. For only $9.95 you can get a set of 25 of the $200 bogus bills. It also says the fake bills makes great unique gifts.
