    I've noticed whenever I buy something at BestBuy and pay with a 20, the cashier marks on it with some kind of marker. Anyone know what that is or what the exact purpose is? I know it probably has something to do with making sure it isn't counterfeit...

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    I dunno, but the paper texture of money is supposed to be unique and not easily imitated.
    that makes no logic

    cool, I never noticed that they did that. A few years ago some seniors (in highschool) tried to conterfit like 300 20's. They got cuaght becuase the took out their wallets bursting with paper, I don't think some highschoolers carry 150 20's in their wallet each. O_o

    Yes, now that you point out common sense to me, I feel a little foolish. I guess I've seen too many high budget movies.

    I knew a kid in middle school who tried to pay for his lunch using counterfeit one dollar bills. Apparently it didn't fool the cash register ladies...
