Check these out
Unfortunately that was 25 years ago, that pooch went to doggy heaven a long time ago. Great dog and very protective of family
, wonderful with and very protective of small kids
. Now I have to use common sense to avoid getting ripped off, I've bought and sold a lot of stuff over the years so I've learned a lot about scumbags.
The next dog was even better, smartest dog I ever had, also the best boat dog I ever had, he died 3 years ago, I still miss him.
you mention the new paper for American paper money
. The company I worked for some time ago made equipment
for the company that makes the currency paper, I believe they still make 90% of the paper used to produce American currency, they have unreal security
and go to great lengths to develop hard to copy anti-counterfeit measures to stay ahead of the crooks. There's a lot more buried in those $100.00 bills than meets the eye, which still makes them hard to copy, unfortunately you need the special readers to see some of the features used to defeat counterfeiters, some of the preventative measures aren't readily seen by the naked eye, but enough are.
By the way, don't assume the notes you get from the bank are solid, some banks will just pass on bad bills if they get stuck with them, it's a not so well kept secret. They don't get reimbursed for taking counterfeits out of circulation and will sometimes just pass them on. Most are good about pulling them out, but not all, same goes for retailers.
Saw a lot of really bad fakes passed around in Mexico
when I was working there.
