Okay all you math majors out there. Here’s one for you.
Would you sell 49 $100 bills for $1,000 cash?
Does not sound like a good deal for the guy with the 49 $100 bills.
Of course, when the 49 $100 bills are counterfeit, that changes the equation.
And when you sell them to an undercover Secret Service Agent, well, all bets are off.
75 year old Victor Raul Andia Von Hesse got caught doing exactly that in Los Angeles on March 22nd 2018.
He’s pleaded guilty to doing it. He could go to federal prison for 20 years.
But he is old and feeble and sick, so prosecutors are only recommending one year probation. Perhaps he can take a couple of classes, one in math, one in common sense.
He’s part of the Andia family that prints counterfeit U-S currency in Peru.
