Green Goods (26/30)


The United States saw an abundance of counterfeit currency in the 19th century. Historians later dubbed the ‘Green Goods Game’ in this era. Scammers will post flyers all over the world pretending to sell ‘genuine’ counterfeit money for sale.

Victims will always respond to the flyers and drive to the place to conclude the transaction. Upon delivery, a bag of real money will be shown to the victim. However, while the victim was busy, the bag of money would be exchanged for a bag of sawdust, green paper, or other useless objects.
