    Angry Fake Ł20 notes

    Just a quick headsup, as if you didn't know already.... and probably should be in the rants section.

    There seems to be a lot of these in circulation - new style ones -, I've had people try and spend these in my shop for the last three days, usually a chav type little kid with a baseball cap on, some have even been regular customers the cheeky little buggers.
    Not being big headed, but I have been dealing with a lot of Ł20 notes for the last 8 years, so I can most probably tell a fake upon touching them 95% of the time, but these new ones are really good copies, including a dodgy strip which does go inbetween the paper, but looks more like tooth floss than a silver strip.
    My problem is the type of abuse I start to get when I tell them it's a fake, it's not like I gave it to them, and I certainly don't need to explain to them why it's a fake!? But they want explanations and demand to see a real one for comparison, like I'm going to hand one over to them to inspect lol.
    I also know that as a duty to the general public, I'm suppose to confiscate them and call the police, but to save hassle/confrontation, I give it them back, and tell them politely to leave my shop if they are not ordering.

    Anyways, just wanted to get it off my chest, rant over.

    They would show up on a UV blacklight note detector, and the detector pens will work also, but there are many ways to tell just by tough also.

    I would, but I would have to take the fake note and give them change in the process.

    Give out freebies to 'special' customers, they going to think they come in to get rid of the note, then you say they cant coz its fake, but say to them, that you doing a special taster, so they think "i didnt use the note, but i still got some free rice out of it" They still think they win until the runny poo rolls down their legs...hahahahaha!!!!
