I just watched NBC Dateline tonight.  They did a segment on counterfeit US Currency. 

Watch this man give new meaning to the phrase "laundering money" when NBC’s Chris Hansen goes along with undercover police officers.  Suspect caught making fake money.   He turns a $5 US Lincoln note into a $100 US Benjamin Franklin note.

It's an excellent video where the counterfeiter uses household cleaners to literally wash away the ink off US currency!   One of the best small time counterfeiters I've seen.

I suppose this is neither her nor there, but here is a good place to find a counterfeit detector. It is getting especially hard to track down some of this stuff with people bleaching fives and printing 50s on them.
