I found an old $5 bill in my wallet that I had forgotten, tucked down in a flap. I went to use it and the woman at the counter would not accept it! She said it was not real. I use the term "woman" loosely..actually, I mean a 16 year old kid. Apparently she did not remember how fives used to look!

I'd arrest you for felony stupidity


Unless, of course, I was the one receiving the bill.

Flag on the play: Sensationalist Headline.

"Now You Can Be Arrested for Using Cash" Really?

ONE guy gets arrested because a stupid cop thought an old fifty was counterfeit. So what does that mean? ANYONE can be arrested for using cash of ANY kind? Ooooh - conspiiiiraaacy. That's what the headline suggests.

Here is the actual headline: "Old $50 bill found real, but not before bearer arrested."

I am seriously getting tired of al the sensationalized headlines for stories that wouldn't even make half the online news outlets. Seriously, can we knock it the hell off already? ATS, can you please institute a penalty for this kind of crap? It is getting out of hand.

They actually aren't really worth much more than face value.... I've got a bunch of them, and a bunch of $2 bills also... just feels awkward to try and use them when other bills will do.

I'm sorry you are so upset. A man was arrested for using legal tender aka "cash". It appears as if this is not the only time this has happened. Please point out where the title is misleading. You can now be arrested for using "cash" - did you read the story? Because if you did, you would see the guy was arrested for...wait for it...using cash. I think the title sums it up nicely. He was arrested for using cash - nothing else. Perhaps you should alert the mods! Travesty isn't it? Lol directly at you for being so "upset".

You're right, of course. I guess I just hold on to those and the red seal bills for nostalgic reasons. It's like a symbol of a time when US money was backed by something other than hollow promises.

Actually, its a sad situation but it seems everyone was a victim in this case. Poor guy gets arrested, young cop looks like a fool, store clerk probably feels like a fool too. The whole reason this is happening is because every five years or so the goverment feels the need to change the way money looks to cut down on counterfeit currency. Its at a point where I half the time can't tell if its real or fake. Like those "gold" indian head coins. I wonder how much it actually cost the taxpayers everytime someone decides its time to change the look of money again.
