    Julia Garcia is suing Walmart after she said employees ripped up two of her $100 bills on grounds that they were counterfeit. (Source: Walmart) Julia Garcia is suing Walmart after she said employees ripped up two of her $100 bills on grounds that they were counterfeit. (Source: Walmart)

    SAN ANTONIO (RNN) - A woman in Texas is putting her money where her mouth is, suing Walmart after a cashier and manager intentionally ripped two of her $100 bills and detained her for hours after they suspected the currency was counterfeit.

    According to a document from the 150th Judicial District Court in Bexar County, TX, Julia Garcia said she was Christmas shopping for her children at a Walmart store in the San Antonio area on Dec. 12, 2010.

    Garcia just sold her vehicle and had two $100 and $50 bills to pay for her items. When she checked out of the store at 2 a.m., she gave the cashier one of each.

    The cashier inspected the $100 bill, showed it to another cashier, and told Garcia the $100 bill was "fake." Garcia claims the cashier ripped up the bill in front of her without performing any counterfeit tests. She also maintains that the metallic strip in the bill was "clearly visible."

    After tearing the bill, the cashier tested it by using a counterfeit detection pen. The pen left a yellow mark on the bill, indicating that it was actually real. However, the cashier told Garcia that the store was keeping the money.

    Garcia asked to see a manager about being refunded. A Walmart employee identified in a court petition as "Russell" responded to Garcia's request.

    Sounds like she may have a good case but why did she wait almost two years to file it.

    I was at another business, a sports store with authority, and two foreign guys where making a purchase. The cashier and manager checked the bills, told them they could not take them,then told them to try them at another store. That's right, pass it elsewhere.

    Stupid people do stupid things. Maybe it's easier to think stupidity is caused by some corporate entity, but we only need to read the daily news to see stupidity is everywhere in our society.

    Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity:
    1. Always and inevitably each of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
    2. The probability that a given person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic possessed by that person.
    3. A person is stupid if they cause damage to another person or group of people without experiencing personal gain, or even worse causing damage to themselves in the process.
    4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people; they constantly forget that at any time anywhere, and in any circumstance, dealing with or associating themselves with stupid individuals invariably constitutes a costly error.
    5. A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person there is.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical

    Then you have to factor in the effect a large number of stupid people can have on society.

    She also maintains that the metallic strip in the bill was "clearly visible." After tearing the bill, the cashier tested it by using a counterfeit detection pen. The pen left a yellow mark on the bill, indicating that it was actually real.
    In my first job after graduation, I worked for a company that made paper currency validation equipment. There are a lot of really interesting features built into the money to help distinguish counterfeits that aren't visible to the eye: sections that are magnetic, parts that are blank when held under infrared, parts that fluoresce under UV or other odd frequencies of light, as well as having paper of certain density, and a few other things. Working for that job, I can also say that I've had the honor of making a phone call to the US Secret Service and asking them to send me some high quality counterfeits, which they did. We used them to test the equipment and program it to reject the fakes.

    I enjoy the reaction when I pay with an “Ike” dollar or a Kennedy half. Cashiers will generally stare at them and a few have even asked if it is real money. I do remember a story where a McDonalds detained a customer and called police when he paid for his meal with two-dollar bills.
