The Unites States Monetary Exchange ( not affiliated w/ the US gov't) had an add in the newspaper today for $2 bills at face value. The bills are UNC and "banded" in packs of five. Sounds like a good deal till you read the fine print; There is a "standard" $9 processing fee PLUS shipping and handeling charge per book of 5.
Then you can also get a new California state quarter for "free" by sending in 3 first class postage stamps.
My thinking is that they get you to pay $10 for the $2 bills, plus $9 processing fee, then S&H costs, then use your 3 stamps to mail you the money.
I gotta come up with a racket like this !!!!
