    The one thing you cannot protect people from is themselves.

    Tell 'em you want payment in quarters... hard to fake. Doubt anyone has a press at home...

    And to those saying just to buy the marking pen that isnt enough either. https://blog.fraudfighter.com/bid/5...-Duo-Printed-Over-4-Million-in-Bleached-Bills . People will take a $1 or a $5 and bleach the ink off them and reprint with $50 or $100. You need to use a UV light and a magnifying glass to check the security stripe on the bills to make sure they were not reprinted. If your $50 or $100 bill has a blue strip and the magnifier shows its a $5 you have a problem :p

    Make sure it's LOOSE QUARTERS.

    I saw a bank get burned for $4,000 on phony rolls of quarters -- a real quarter glued to each end of a rod and then wrapped in paper.

    There's one good thing about a $500 bag of quarters: at 75 POUNDS, it's good for STRENGTH TRAINING!!!

    Just curious....has anyone here on the Zed ever been paid in counterfeit money for ham gear or know of it taking place ? It's called life and life is not without risks.
