Alleged U.S. counterfeiter ‘The Printer’ busted for fake $50 bills

No, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is not the one to be busted by the United States federal government. Instead, some man in Atlanta, who was known in criminal circles as “The Printer,” was arrested for charges of counterfeiting. Using simple office equipment, he allegedly was able to print out $50 bills by gluing the front and back of the bill together.

The YouTube video can be found below and it is highly recommended to check out the comments section for jokes about Bernanke and his counterfeiting scheme, er, economic stimulus.
