Customer stuck with counterfeit money from the post office

David Lipin
“The police said the $100 bills were actually $5 bills that had been bleached and altered,” recalls L.A. resident David Lipin. “They showed me how you could hold them up to the light and see Abraham Lincoln’s face." (Brian van der Brug, Los Angeles Times)

After cashing a postal money order, David Lipin tried using one of the eight $100 bills at the gas station and was nearly arrested. Even the Secret Service couldn't help him replace the bogus bills.
