This story from Canada describes an attempt to pass napkins off as $100 bills. It's didn't end well. -Editor
Cass Alder, of Prince Edward Island, Canada, is a very ambitious 22-year-old.
Besides defrauding H&R Block of $5,267 CAD (or $4,216.64 in USD) using a fraudulent tax form, Alder has also been sentenced with counterfeiting
charges in his hometown of Lennox Island. But it's really Alder's methodology that's deserving of some attention.
Alder purchased a package of napkins emblazoned with the image of a $100 Canadian dollar bill, cut out the images and pasted them to pieces of
paper using a glue stick. He then baked the forgeries for a short time to ensure a solid hold.
Alder's plan crumpled like so many napkins when he attempted to spend the bills at a convenience store, only to have a clerk refuse to accept
it. He then fled the store.
