    Counterfeit, huh? If these guys are doing this in Bermuda, it can’t be too hard to spot. And a weapon, too. Not too bright. Lock ‘em up, even if they divulge where the phony money came from. That’s a serious charge, boys.

      Last week in the court news there was a guy caught with $500 in counterfeit 50s just driving around in his car as casually as can be.
      He claimed that it was the proceeds from an ‘anonymous customer’ who bought a gold chain from him that he had just sold . After the fact , he realized that only 2 of the $50 notes were real , the rest were bogus but he was ‘too afraid’ to turn them in .. HAHAHAHA

      These crooks learn from an early age and have their excuses and alibis lined up long before they are caught . I wonder where they learn this behavior from ?
