Walmart employees ‘ripped up woman’s $100 bills because they thought they were fake’

A Texas woman found out that it’s not easy spending green, when Wal-Mart security guards detained her for several hours and destroyed her property – after she tried to spend two legitimate 100 dollar bills.
Julia Garcia was shopping when she handed the bill to a cashier – only to have that employee call a summit, then return to her station, rip up the Benjamin and berate Garcia for trying to pass funny money … without actually checking the authenticity with legit equipment.
Garcia took out a second bill, and the store manager immediately ripped it up and called cops – who arrived with testing devices and informed them that they’d made “a terrible mistake” in shredding Garcia’s cold, hard cash.
The manager attempted to send Garcia off with the pieces of her original bills, but an officer on the scene insisted he give her clean crisp replacements – an order that angered him. Garcia is now suing for $75,000 in damages.Article Source
