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!

Wait, if the wallet was leather, does that mean that the cow is a cannibal??

Surely you could get some decent counterfeit notes , leave em in soil etc and then get them reimbursed ? No way to prove they are fake because the indicators will be damaged ?

This would be such depressing work to me, as so many of your clients have probably lost everything.

did he take out the stomach of the cow just to get his money back? Did the cow die? Was the stomach put back? Didn't he lose money having the operation to take out the stomach and put the stomach back?

This is one of the major weaknesses of paper currency. Not an issue for most folks with easy banking access, but to hundred of millions around the world who are unbanked (and another XX million folks who prefer that the bulk of their cash assets go untaxed), bitcoin and cryptocurrencies solves this issue nicely.

I remember not long after polymers were brought out in Canada, someone who had been storing their cash in a can near the heater had continued doing that with the polymers. Which ended up resulting in the polymers melting together. He got reimbursed for it.

This is why making money out of paper is a bad idea, it’s too fragile
Voltaire Oy oldin
+Eliza Peek I've sent bills through the wash for hours and they come out completely fine. They aren't made from paper, it's cotton fabric, my dude. Plastic is only better for anti-counterfeit but it's already basically impossible to counterfeit. I prefer paper personally
Eliza Peek
Eliza Peek Oy oldin
It’s easy to tear, and if it gets wet it’s ruined. It’s fragile compared to currency made from plastic like the Australian notes

It's not paper and it's not that fragile

why are we spending our tax dollars to help idiots who thought putting money in the oven or microwave was a good idea?
Voltaire Oy oldin
+Daily Dumb If that's what you're referring to then yeah you're right. I thought you may have said something much stupider. Anyway, this service barely costs anything and helps people enormously. This is a good service
Daily Dumb
Daily Dumb Oy oldin
+Voltaire yes we are, who do you think pays the workers who do this? It's a free service, so the person who wrecked their money is not paying. And unless you think all of the workers who are counting the damaged bills are working without pay out of the goodness of their hearts, that money has to come from somewhere. It is a government program, so it is payed for in taxes.
Voltaire Oy oldin
It's not like we are paying them in tax dollars
