Tonight I went back to the Kroger's Food Store where A couple days ago I asked for $100 back on an ATM debit card. Today. Someone examined it and said it was counterfeit. They held it and said if I did not relinquish it I would be arrested. I had not argued with them in any way. It was a $20 bill.
Seems so often the twisted knife in the neck just raises one's blood pressure. (That twisted knife being those that gave it to me would not accept it.)
So I just calmy asked her about procedure in such a case. Said the police would be notified. I said OK. And I would prefer the police be called now.Just wanted to know if you hold a counterfeit bill, can not some kind of restitution be initiated.
So the police officier comes. Everything is ok. I just want to know about procedure. There is no retrival of counterfeit money if you accept it. And I later understood, that should I have had more than one illegal bill on my person - I probably would have been subject to an investigation.
So I give him my driver's license. Checked with his Sgt. I guess. He turns it over to some federal agency. End of story. Should you get a $100 illegal bill from a bank you are screwed.
anyone else have an incident to report about this problem. Just curious.
It was countefeit. Did not have some magnetic stip on the left side of the bill. Now I am warned to check the bills that an ATM spits out at you at 10 PM. As if that will make any difference.
