Man pays with a €30 note
« on: April 25, 2013, 09:17:31 AM »
In Dülmen (NW, DE) a man paid with a "30 euro" note yesterday. :)  The cashier accidentally accepted it as a €20 note, and gave him his purchases and the change. Then she noticed the mistake, but the man had already left on his bicycle. The "note" is apparently based on a €20 note, except that all occurrences of the "20" had been changed into "30". Here is a police photo:



Well, last night the man showed up at a police station, with an explanation: He had found the 30er in a neighboring city, and put it aside so that his children would not do anything with it. Yesterday morning he accidentally spent it - and when his wife told him that the police are investigating (guess she had heard it on the radio or so), he decided to go to the police ...

The first article (both in German) is the original police notice; the second one is today's update:
