The teller at the bank said they already got a couple bogus new $100. Seems there is a sophisticated printer that mimics them pretty well. You can tell if you look closely, but most people will accept them on sight. Crooks will always find a way. I agree about the lack of class these notes display. If they would light up, they would be completely clown like.

On the contrary, this notes are very easy to counterfeit ,the feds spent millions to prevent this bill to be copied and that was a big failure and waste of money as usual, because did you hear about the 12 year old boy who made a perfect $100 note so good that the mint had to be called in to tell the difference between his note and a mint made one? he did it only to prove that it could be done and not to pass off any fakes, he was the one who called the feds in to check his copies,so of course the feds confiscated all of his equipment and told him when he turns 18 he has a job at the mint=true storyPALH1 wrote:

had a thought here.....
every time they make these changes on the bills, do they have to do some sort of 'ATM' re-program, software update, optical recognition change....?
