Note Scam Noted

| Right | July 23, 2017

(I have often read about the scam where the scammer claims that they paid with a $20 note, when in fact they only paid with a $10 note. This customer tried to pull the scam on me, but because this is in Canada, he never stood a chance.)

Me: “That’ll be $5.65 please.”

Customer: *hands me $10*

Me: “And here’s your change.”

Customer: “Er… you didn’t give me enough. I paid $20, not $10.”

Me: “Sir, I can guarantee you, with no doubt, that you gave me a $10, and you are trying to scam me.”

Customer: “What? How dare you! Do you know who I am?!”

Me: “Apparently somebody who has yet to notice that banknotes are colour-coded. The bill you gave me was PURPLE. It was $10.”

Customer: “…I’m colour-blind?”

Me: “I’m not. Take your change and leave.”
