Let’s set the scene: you’ve just discovered your pup chewed away at your entire life savings. Or, last month’s rent was suddenly burned to a crisp after being left in the oven. Bizarre mistakes happen, but what can you do? Submit a claim over to the U.S. Department of Treasury where Eric Walsh, assistant manager of the Mutilated Currency Division, will examine and reimburse you for your damaged stacks. Cheers!

I have a plan; take a 100 dollar bill rip it in half and burn it a bit so it looks like there was a real accident and then send in the other half and get $200 back 😎

I left my money in the safe for two weeks and mold began to grow on it. Other currencies I had there didn't experience this problem. That is because USDs are made out of cotton.

Years ago I found half of a ten dollar bill. I sent it to the treasury and they sent me a check for $10. Seemed worth it for a stamp, an envelope, and a little of my time. It also gets the money back into circulation.

Just to clarify. This is not a service to relieve people: At least it is not intended that way. Probably most countries' central banks do this. It is to prevent devaluation of the currency. Might sound a bit dumb but as he says, they recover 40 million dollars to the economy and that is only 12 employees. In fact, central banks usually destroy a bill if they think it is damaged enough and make a fresh one just to prevent paper money falling apart.

Wow, that's actually pretty cool. NOW with that said folks.. if somehow you show up with 1 million dollars in half destroyed money.., they will check into your finances to see if you made this money, and if you don't have a legit explanation it may be an issue getting the money. If they believe its proceeds of crime your fucked/

How do they profit from this?
TheRealNoodles 7 kun oldin
Skelly they don't need to profit from this. The treasury's job is to make sure the economy runs smoothly, agreeing to replace broken dollar bills is one way. Plus people need to spend to keep the economy going. Not replacing this would be a loss for the economy.

Any bank will reissue you new bills as long as the bills have 3 corners. This is set by the treasury and enforced by the secret service. When I was 12 years old I found over $5k underneath a fire pit we had in the woods. Took it to the bank and the lady explained everything to me and I wound up with $3572 because many of the bills did not have 3 corners. Thinks was in 1992. I told the bank teller how I got them and I asked if I needed to report it to the police and she told me if I did and was not associated with any crime I would never see the cash again. Cop tells his lieutenant he contacted the person who made report and was returned but actually 99% of the time it's just pocketed. With that money I was able to pay for me, my mother and brother to fly to California for 8 days, we went to Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm Amusement Park, hard rock cafe , universal studios and a tour of Hollywood. My father added about $1500 to it but he did not go because he had to work and he is petrified of flying. To this day my older brother has no idea the reason we were able to fly from b.w.i. to l.a.x. on a whim.
