Woman Suing Walmart for Ripping up $100 Bills

The cashier inspected the $100 bill, showed it to another cashier, and told Garcia the $100 bill was “fake.” Garcia claims the cashier ripped up the bill in front of her without performing any counterfeit tests. She also maintains that the metallic strip in the bill was “clearly visible.”

After tearing the bill, the cashier tested it by using a counterfeit detection pen. The pen left a yellow mark on the bill, indicating that it was actually real. However, the cashier told Garcia that the store was keeping the money.

Garcia asked to see a manager about being refunded. A Walmart employee identified in a court petition as “Russell” responded to Garcia’s request.

Russell agreed with the cashier’s conclusion and told Garcia that she had to wait for police. When Garcia took out the second $100 bill in an attempt to prove the money was valid, Russell took the bill, told her it was counterfeit and also ripped it in half. When San Antonio Police arrived to the store, they tested the money and confirmed the bills were real. She declined to receive the ripped bill back and police advised Walmart employees to replace them with new ones.

Look Out Google – Facebook’s Social Search is Coming

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the social network is already handling a billion search queries per day, and that it is interested in launching a social search engine powered by the activity of its users — something that could turn out to be Google’s worst nightmare.

During an interview at the Disrupt conference on Tuesday — the first since Facebook’s underwhelming IPO and subsequent stock slide — co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerbergtalked a lot about the social network’s strategy in a number of areas, including a defence of the company’s approach to mobile and an explanation of why the company moved away from HTML5 for its apps. But while those comments were interesting, I thought the most revealing part of the interview came when Zuckerberg talked about search. Although he didn’t go into a lot of detail, it was clearly intended as a shot across Google’s bow: the underlying message was that Facebook is going to do social search, and soon — and it already has most of the ingredients necessary to mount a significant challenge to the search giant.
