I get a 1$ bill today, from somewhere. As I am dumping my pockets onto my desk, I notice the bill is marked with a red stamp with the website.

I go check out the website and it tracks (as long as people play) where the money has been.

Great Idea, neat to see where it has been.

Lots of other currancy tracking info as well on there....

People never cease to amaze me. I went to archive.org and see that this guy has been doing this since 1999.

Cool.

kinda neat, but...
isn't it a felony to write on a dollar bill?

I have seen a couple, but I really don't want to know where my money has been. Ignorance is bliss.

indeed, thousands of convicted currency defacers currently do long stretches in federal pens can attest to the truth of this....

Yes. These guys used to sell rubber stamps. You stamed the where's george logo on your bills before you spent them. There's a page on their site someplace that says they don't sell stamps anymore.

Its been around for a long time.
I put about 20-30 $1 bills into the system over the years.
Last year I used about $15 in singles.....all over Europe!

Still waiting to see if any show up in the system ever again....would be neat.

Big deal

I just wrote on all the money in my wallet as an act of civil disobedience .

Unless I'm mistaken, it's a felony to FRAUDULENTLY deface money.

Marking it with a website name so that people can track the bill later is not fraud.

Yea, I do that all the time. Write stuff like " throw me away" or "you are my slave", ect.
