Almost hit 'GET DEAL' but then realised it was a detector, not maker (_;)

Ideal for smaller shops that would normally be the target of swapping these notes

I use one of those pens which I bought off ebay for a couple of quid, after someone gave me a fake note when I sold something on Gumtree.

Will this work in Monopoly? Sick of people cheating...(_;)

Hmmm, Wonder if they r really or just selling fakes and collecting addresses for potential victims.

Does anybody think the shops would mind if I asked them to plug this in so I can check the notes in my change?

Why would you buy a money detector that's fake?

It's rubbish.

I paid for mine with a 9 pound note.

The ink on a genuine note never really dries, so if you take a more heavily coloured part & wipe it over some clean white paper, it will leave a stain behind. A fake won't.

Not that the nectar points are worth having....worst loyalty scheme ever

Ordered one, to check these photocopies I have been turning out!oO

i bought the exact same one from ebay,the first one lasted two days before the light went out,the second one lasted all of a week and the third one never even worked at all...cheap garbage and a total waste of money.

Isn't that an old £20 note in the pic?

Funny this popped up, i was looking for a detector for the last week or 2. I thought i had about £300 worth of fake £20's because they just did not feel right, some guy gave me them with 5k. Anyway i had a little pen UV light and on the 15x £20 notes i couldnt find the '20' logo at the top, so as well as them feeling fake they also appeared fake.

Went and got a complete money counting machine with apparent MG1 and UV detector built in. Went through the cash and it picked up zero fake notes. I then purchased one of them pens for £1.40 that if you draw a line on a note the pen mark will appear as a black line IF the note is fake. Real notes it will not appear at all. No fake notes found.

Anyway Moral to the story for me anyway is dont trust the UV light, some £20's are so badly worn that they appear fake and the UV doesnt pick the '20' logo up at the top of the note. If your buying this UV detector at least get one of the cheap pens too.

Thank you

Yeah, you just reminded me of that one... I knew the metal strip, the watermark, and the raised ink, but knew there was one more I'd forgotten.

Top tip from former Bank of England manager... The quickest and most reliable way to check if an English note is fake is to run your fingers over the Bank of England writing at the top.

This area has raised text, and so you will feel it. Fake notes are printed, and even those done with offset printing don't have the raised text.

This can wear down over time, so if you can't feel the text, you need to inspect the note more closely. However, if it is there the note is fine. In all my years in retail, this was what I relied on. Never had a fake note make it past me.

No you probably gave it back to a customer. At a company I worked for we got a couple of unsealed bundles of £10 notes from the bank (ones made up by the cashiers on the desk) & there were 3 forged noted out of 200 & the majority we saw came from pensioners coming straight from collecting their pensions at the Post Office

I don't like your assumption at all. The fake notes that crossed my path were never returned to the customers. To do so would have been illegal.

It can cause quite high tension situations when you have to tell someone the money they have handed over is fake, but that is why retail staff should be trained in situation management.

Banks have a habit of dishing out fake or inappropriate tender (in channel island/isle of Man currency which is not backed by the Bank of England). They don't want it any more than anyone does/should - it ends up having to be written off as a loss if they can't pass it on. That's the reason I check the money I get from banks and cash machines.

Only 1 million nectar points then you can claim a free pencil.

Why you all avoiding counterfeit money? It's a blessing. More money in circulation yet inflation is not affected #BeatCentralThieves

just use plastic in big shops and small shops should also get card reader, coz that is the present and future..we still living in era where ppl have too much of black money and using card should prevent tax evading and cash in hand lot..

Would rather spend my money on a GENUINE fake note detector. This one is COUNTERFEIT.

Still risky using plastic in shops. Whilst you are more likely to lose your details through rubbish searching or phishing scams, card skimming is still a significant issue in the UK. Not just in shops, but also on cash machines as well. Not to mention the way our scummy government works, they would want to collect and analyse your spending and location data before selling it off to private companies.

I'll have to get one. I can't imagine how I've got by all this time without one.

I took two £10 notes out of a cash point this afternoon and went to buy something in Kettering.
Handed my notes over, he scribbled on them with one of those pens, put one down and spent a lot of time on the second one then passed it back saying it was fake.
The pen mark had gone yellow and I must admit it did feel different to the other note I gave.
Had all the watermarks and silver stripe. Anyway, he took it back saying he'd let the bank sort it out and gave me my change.

Oh, it was the WizMix store in Kettering if anyone needs to pass any duds
