it's about $1700, which is a pretty good reward for tipping off police to a counterfeiter.

I guess the production costs of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?"are pretty low and the contestants are probably not too excited.

Nobody should have too many Wons.  Share them with the rest

Known only by his surname, Kim

First name Chi?

Never counterfeit, kids. The government hates competition!
 
2013-06-25 03:44:00 PM
Known only by his surname, Kim...

Wow, that narrows it down to only 1/3 of the population.

He alias is the seaweed man.

\Take away three of the zeros and you have pretty close to American money.

We could have suffered more pun-wise, if subby had found a story about a Vietnamese counterfeiter

Haha, same serial. Moran. They got a guy in I think CA doing 20's with the same thing (Well it was a series). Except he had done a million plus in bogus cash. He even was putting in the strips and making sure the paper was coated to pass those stupid markers.
 
2013-06-25 04:53:11 PM
lol spent ten years copying the same bill with the same serial number...

I just want to point out that for every moron who gets caught this way, there are probably 20 smart dudes who got away with it.

I lived in Korea, and if their figure of 2.2 counterfeit bills per million is correct then everyone I knew there had terrible luck, foreigners and natives both. I've only ever seen maybe 2 counterfeit bills in the US that I knew were fake, and in Korea I was passed more than 5 in under 2 years, some from ATM machines. It's a requirement there to be constantly on the lookout, which is most likely how that shopkeeper spotted the fake. I mean, if there's only 2.2 fake bills per million, who would even be checking?

/best Korea doesn't have that problem
//then again, best Korea doesn't have money

Not only that, but everything there is a lot cheaper. My rent was 500,000 won a few blocks from the Seoul subway system, and I live with my girlfriend so we paid 250,000 each. You can buy dinner for 1,000 won if you want.

At best 7? The whole time I was there I don't think I met any quite as homely as the one on the right, at least not dressed like that. She has redefined 0 for me in terms of Koreans.
