Sign used by Mara Salvatrucha.

It means that money was used to pay for a hit. It's "blood money", if you will.

I posted a similar thread about a year ago, had a similar arabic looking stamp. Got some serious answers about foreign currency exchanges.

Saw on the history channel a while ago that the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing traced some of the best counterfeit bills they had ever seen back to a Chinese Gov't run operation.

I'm in fabrics and some of my smaller export customers used to pay me in cash. These people predominantly came from Central and South America. Prior to coming to the US for their buying trip they buy dollars from currency exchanges. These 'cambios' are usually run by Latinos of Lebanese or Syrian decent. They tend to mark their bills with a unique trademark. It's sort of a inventory control concept.

Cool...I see some weird things on cash all the time @ work.

No it would not even be illegal to burn it. It is your money do with it as you please.

To answer the question, it looks like an ink stamp. No cause for alarm.

I asked an arabic speaking friend of mine (via email). I'll let you know what he says.

It's AIDS,.

he says that it says "The company of", and that he's having a hard time making out the company name. I'll post if he figures it out, got a few meetings coming up so I may be a while.
