In this video, you can see how easy it is for Rusty to make a counterfeit USD$100 notes. Undercover Police paid rusty 1,500 for his demonstration in the fine art of counterfeiting. First, he takes real five dollar bills and sets out to remove all of their ink. He soaks them in a degreaser (some people use nail polish) bought at an automotive store and heats them up for a minute or so in a microwave oven. The Bill need about one and half minute in the microwave oven and leave it in there for about ten minutes. Rusty showing the undercover officers how he clean the bills, and actually taking the ink right off. He finishes washing the bill in a bowl of water and sprays it with a household cleaner.
He then uses a hairdryer to finish the drying process. When he's done, what used to be a $5 bill is virtually blank, except for the watermark of Abraham Lincoln. To make the fake hundred he'll use an inkjet printer and a scanner. He scans a photo of a real hundred dollar bill and prints it on top of the blank paper he just created from that five dollar bill. The result is a piece of counterfeit hundred dollar bill. What's the quality? The police say as counterfeits go—it's fairly good. If someone were to take the time to hold this up to a light you could actually see Abraham Lincoln and the $5 strip here. But most people don't do that.
