COUNTERFEIT-DETECTING PENS MAKE CLERKS LAZY

Myron Xenos writes: "The article on counterfeits in the October 22nd
E-Sylum fueled up my assumption that all one needs to do anymore to
pass bad money is figure out what chemical or substance to soak the
bill in to make the pen react as real. This counterfeit-detecting
pen routine causes clerks to not observe the actual bill itself. I
believe that most of us who have collected currency for a while can
spot a bad bill at ten paces.

Our bank had a roving exhibit from the Secret Service a few years
ago, and it was easy to score 100%. I think that "looking" is the
real way to keep from accepting bad paper."
