    Fraud by deception. If he knowingly deposits bogus bucks, and then withdraws “real” money.. it is a Federal felony. Think bank robbery…20yrs plus in a fed pen,

    It is illegal and a fraud charge might be put on your friend. You better advice him not to do so…It is not right perild.

    if they look that close to the real bills just tell your friend to say he though they were real, you can get in trouble for knowingly passing fake bills but if he just says he though they were real, had no idea of counterfeit bills, He cant really get into any trouble. Now if they can prove he knew the bills were fake(like goin and taking that exact amount out after he just deposits it) he could get into big trouble. If they dont look/feel 100% real dont try it because hell get busted, better off just buying merchandise and then returning it for real cash

    It’s a federal offense to even posess counterfeit money, let alone to deposit it at a bank. Expect a call from the Secret Service fairly soon.

    If it is cash and it goes unnoticed generally the bank is stuck. If they notice then all of it will be confiscated and reported to the Secret Service. From there the Feds will decide his fate. Generally one or two bills nothing happens, but a whole wade of it you can expect a lot of jail time.

    Now a check if the bank suspects him of knowingly putting in bad money then as others have said he could receive fines, jail time, etc. just depends on what the bank wants to do.

    Basically depositing a large check then going to another branch and taking it out right away is a pretty could sign of fraud. Account will be froze and most likely the Secret Service will take over from there.

    Now he deposits and takes out little by little his account will go negative when the check is returned and if he doesn’t pay the debt back he will be put on chexsystems and his credit will be destroyed.

    Best thing to do is smack your friend and be like wtf are you an idiot?

    Most tellers are trained in detecting counterfeit cash. If the texture of the fake bill is a little off, the teller will usually catch it. (They go through thousands of dollars each day). Every teller usually has a counterfeit pen and/or black light to confirm their suspicions.

    Even if the teller does not catch the bill, when the teller closes up for the day, all remaining money is run through a money counter which is also designed to detect counterfeits. When a conterfeit bill enters the system, the Secret Service is notified. At that point an intensive investigation is started which includes pulling surveylance tapes and a copy of all transactions done by the teller. Then, it’s only a matter of time until your friend is caught…. they always get caught.
