Lukeonia1: The update to this article now says he got his money back, after it was determined that his "counterfeit" bills were actually just old pre-redesign bills. Which is a marginal improvement; means this is less of a story about bank dragging its heels and screwing a customer over, and more of a "$2 bill at Taco Bell" story.


I spent a $2 bill at Taco Bell and received a counterfeit taco in return.

TNel: Clent:
Be cautious if the amount is over $10,000 since cashwithdrawal and deposits that large must be reported to the government by thefinancialinstitution.

Also call ahead if it's larger than $10k since a lot of banks don't hold too much money and if you go to the bank they might not have enough readily available and you might have to wait for them to get all of it.


Call the bank and tell them you plan on coming in later to cash a $100,000 check so they should make sure to have plenty of cash on hand. Also ask about their policy on wearing ski masks inside the building.

Update

"A Sovereign spokesperson told WBZ Tuesday the situation has been resolved and that "the investigation showed that the currency given to Mr. Rivas was in fact legal tender, not counterfeit."

Westboro police also confirmed the settlement saying the Citizens Bank teller made a mistake and that the cash turned out to be older money that they had not seen in a while."

So the Taco Bell Worker is now a bank teller... That's just great!

TFA: It shakes all of their faith in the banks, he says. "It's an establishment that you trust and to have counterfeit money in your hands when you leave the bank, it's just, it's frightening."

Well there's his mistake.
