Given the recent violent muggings in my n’hood in DC, I’ve thought about carrying just a money clip with my id/cards and cash and then an old wallet with some old ID and other junk to hand over to a mugger. Presumably they don’t count the money and then let you go. And as far as saying “I don’t have any money” that is when one mugger shot a guy. So…I can either just hand over this useless wallet with some money in it showing (which saves me from losing any valueable cards or id I need to go out on the town) or put some fake money in it.
Question is: how fake can fake money appear and still be legal? And if I make it fairly realistic (too night time eyes, no wire or lighting images), am I in trouble for carrying it around?
What if the mugger takes it and tries to spend it? (Kinda like a capture device , ok that’s not likely to work, but it would be funny. Or would I get arrested if he did try to pass it, too. “Where did you get these counterfeits?” “This guy I mugged!” )
