    Not only does currency have skin oils and such, but traces of cocaine and other illegal drugs. :eek:

    That is one reason I use NOS bills. Many banks have them.

    We used a cheap business card -- not the glossy / expensive ones.

    Hmmm. About two months ago I was in the "convenience store" at a large local gas station chain.

    A guy ahead of me by about two people, in the adjacent cash register lane, gave the cashier a counterfeit $100 note/bill. It didn't pass the initial checks with a pen. Then it didn't pass with a supervisor's special light. Things quickly escalated. I wanted to pay for my soda and snack, and I just wanted out. I figure he was "packing". In the confusion, I left my credit card on the counter.

    Since I was extremely close to the bill they were examining with various lights, it sure looked real to me. Several police cars arrived about the time I left the cash register counter.

    A few days later when I again needed gasoline, I asked about the incident. I was told that the guy near me who passed the bill, and two others were arrested in the immediate area.

    My credit card got cancelled. What a pain in the butt.

    I didn't have the presence of mind to ask if a counterfeit $100 bill would make a good burnishing tool for relay and switch contacts.:eek:

    I've even
    Good story.

    I've even seen cashiers check twenties with a pen. There must be a lot of counterfeit bills around.

    We hear about counterfeits all the time here. It's usually twenties.
