There's something endearing about low-tech, high risk stupid crimes.

My dad used to work in a bank.  Once some guy turned up with a big stack of £10 notes (the highest denomination in those days) covered in tape  He claimed that he had dropped them in the shredder and taped them back together again. My dad was instantly suspicious, so popped into the back, measured a couple and they were all about 5% smaller than regular £10 notes.  This guy had taken 40 x £10 notes, painstakingly cut them up and put them back together again to make 42 x £10 notes.  So he basically gambled £400 to make a possible £20.

It was such a pathetic attempt my dad didn't have the heart to call the cops.  He just handed them back and laughed at the guy.

That makes me sad. How dumb / desperate can someone be?
