Sweet, new Borderlands game.

When the New York mob was running their gasoline scam in the region, they had to do this to get the gasoline smell out of the small bills.

The brains behind the scam is currently credited to Micheal Francese, and he claims (and the government charges back) that the scam made $10 a week.  Oh, sorry, $10,000,000 a week.  It is considered the most profitable mob racket since prohibition.

I have left bills in my jeans on wash day myself.

Once did the laundry at a Ohio hotel. Opened up the wrong machine and found  $800.00 floating around. Grabbed it all and then waited for the owner to show up. Never saw such a happy face in my life. He was on vacation with his family and forgot he had left all the travel money in his jeans.

Dumbass, but a lucky one at that.

They were being socially responsible and washing the money before putting it back in circulation.

How did they fit all of that money in the dishwasher's butt?

A few decades ago I was at my job at the time and found a $50 bill folded up on the floor, far out of sight from anyone but trafficked regularly throughout the day/night.
I picked it up, put it in my wallet, and never told a soul about it.
I think ~1 month passed and a few co-workers and I were just hanging out talking about everything other than losing/finding money and one of them happened to mention that they lost a $50 bill in the area that I found it.
I took it out of my wallet and gave that exact bill back to them and explained what happened.  They were quite happy, as one would expect.

Given the circumstances there was no way he could have planted it nor could he have known I found it because I never uttered a word about it to anyone; I just waited until I could know who it belonged to if it ever came to that.

Fast-forward about a year and the same dude asks if I could help fix some things on his computer.  I say, "Fine, bring it to my place and I'll get it working".  He lugs all the crap to my apartment one day and explains he needs things removed from it, like pics, history, and whatever the fark else but proclaims it's all not anything bad.  (uh huh)

I don't 'look' at anything but go through the motions of sanitizing the disk.
I'm sitting in my living room with all his gear, he's heading to my bathroom, and I say it's all done.  He says, "Thank you so much!  I'll suck your dick for doing that."  I respond with, "Nah, it's all good dude.  You're all set".
He said, "I'll suck your dick anyway".

/ He was serious.
// There were no dick-suckings as a result of that encounter (NTTAWWT)
/// I have no idea whatever became of that dude but that was ~25 years ago.  I learned later on that it wasn't his computer; it was the property of the people he was staying with at the time and he used it for I don't know what.
/// I don't know why I brought this up.

A key point not addressed in this story or the above comments by Farkers is that Australian banknotes are not made of paper, but plastic, and therefore water does not damage them.

They can't charge them with anything, that's clean money.

/or can they also charge and arrest the money over there as well?
