Am I being punked?

Posted on 09/25/2012 6:09:51 PM PDT by conservativesister

I've been told that the new $50 and $100 dollar bills have a tracking imprint that can be found by government satellites to locate large amounts of money being hoarded?

No real point in hoarding paper money anyway.

That is true.

As a nice guy, if you send me all of your $50 and $100 bills, I will send you back some $10 and $5 bills.

Yep. Paper money is just about worthless.

Hoarding $100 bills hasn’t really been a problem for me.

I doubt very much that technology has advanced to the point where something the size and weight of a money bill can punch a signal to a satellite, with no battery.

Just to be sure, I have a huge stack of 100’s that I’m gonna wrap up in foil, just in case.

There is a polyester filament in the bill, but it is an anti-counterfeiting measure. If you photocopy a bill, the strip won’t be there.

A simple Google search would have answered your question. This rumor has been going around for nearly 20 years.

Satellite? I don’t think so. But I do believe that certain bills have a tiny metallic thread. If you have enough of them in one roll, walking through a metal detector will get a reaction. I believe that is on purpose — if you’ve got $5000 in your pocket, the government wants to be aware of it.

All paper money really is, is an IOU from people who don’t really care if they pay what’s owed or not. You could wake up in the morning and find that all the cash was completely worthless.

That's why they bleach out $1 and $5 bills and print over them. They then check out as real bills.

there are metallic fibers of a certain length embedded in the paper.

If you have a strong RF signal, and look at the return reflection, you can estimate the amount of money. However, this takes a very strong transmitter, and a very controlled environment — think of an x-ray scanner at the airport.

So although it’s possible on a local basis, the idea we can do that from space is a bit far-fetched, as it would take dedicated very high power satellites (which we may have but I doubt it).

Send me a stack or two of those bills and I will degauss them and ship them back to you for a small fee.

The one dollar bill has no strip. The strips have the denomination of the bill printed on them. Ones are bleached for the paper, probably not really easy to pass though

That only works if no one looks closely at the polyester strip. It has microprinting matching the bill denomination.

It would take quite a large value to make up a detectable pile. Here is a graphic similar to one I saw earlier this year.

http://blueeyeview.blogspot.com/2012/01/staggering-obscene-graphics.html

If you only have a few million you shouldn’t have a problem stashing it in a few safes with your guns and other valuables. Now if your talking more than 100 million or so then the challenge is somewhat greater.

Finding counterfeits made by bleaching is easy. Mainly because of poor printing quality. But also each bill has it’s own magnetic ink characteristics that doesn’t completely bleach away. Currency counter counterfeit detection is available to the public with equipment that detects ink. I was working at a major cash vault the day the new 20’s came out and we found counterfeits the next day.

I forgot to add: the security strip is in a different place on each bill.

Of course, it depends on the recipient knowing what to look for.

Well that works to duplicate the paper, but it doesn’t help with the anti-fraud strip, because ones and fives don’t have a strip. Also, the bills that do have strips have the denomination printed on them, which is what the store clerks are looking for when they hold the bill up to the light.
