Not sure what I'll do next time I get a dodgy note.
Last year - when I was a final year mature nursing student and as skint as I've ever been in my life - I drew £40.00 from a local cash machine. As I put the two £20.00 notes in my purse it was obvious that they were made of the wrong type of paper - they were far to thick. As the cash machine was part of the Royal Bank of Scotland I immediately took the notes in there. The notes were examined and I was told it was nothing to do with them as they were Clydesdale Bank's notes. Therefore I immediately walked over to the Clydesdale Bank and presented them there with the honest explanation of how I had come by these notes. My name and address were taken and about ten days later I received a very curt letter saying that as the notes were fakes they had been destroyed.
All well and good for everyone except me who had lost what amounted to two week's food budget for myself and my son.
Who said honesty pays? Would I be so honest in the future? ........... ?????????

D. Try to pass it off as real in a shop
I suppose it would depend more on weather or not you could afford to loose the £20 or not. £20 may not seem alot of money to those who can afford for it to be taken off them but for the people who need the £20 to feed their family I think the correct answer there would be to feed thier family. It may not be the 'right' thing to do but is definatly right in my view for the sake of their family.
Ide spend it, £20 is alot of money to loose just for the sake of doing the 'right' thing.
