Counterfeiters of the world…you’re being put on notice!

A bank employee named Larissa shared a TikTok video and talked to viewers about a recent experience she had at her job that opened her eyes to the world of counterfeit money.

Larissa said, “I work at a bank, and we just got a $100 counterfeit bill, and I want to show it to you guys.”

She showed viewers a real $100 bill and said, “How you can tell it’s real. This very smooth blue strip has a very distinct different texture. If you scratch their shirt, there is a ribbed texture that you can feel with your nail. And if you hold it up to the light, there are security features.”

Larissa continued,  “There are many ways to tell if a $100 is real. And there are many ways to tell if a $100 is not real. Up to the light: There is no security feature. Rub on this blue strip? Just paper. Take a scratch of the shirt? Just paper.”

Larissa continued, “These are both from 2017, and the printing quality is so different. Let me show you. Look at how there’s a shadow under this printing. And then you go down here, and there is no shadow. It is very clean, very obvious. And just the printing quality of Ben. He looks so much better here. Ben is judging you for your poor printing quality on your counterfeit $100 bill.”

She knows her stuff!
