Just when I thought I had heard everything, along comes this company that will sell you 52 fake ATM receipts that they’ll put any dollar figures you want on. I’m sure that this is just a good prank for many people, but you know there are some people out there that will actually buy these in an attempt to be something they are not. It’s keeping up with the Jones’ on a whole new level. I suppose once these folks buy the receipts, they’ll then need to figure out a clever way of dropping them at just the right time so that someone they know will find them and think, “Oh my gosh. He’s loaded!!” Poor fools.
If you’d like to actually see a “REAL” copy of my ATM receipt, check it out here:
Of course this is real and this is just my checking account. I keep most of my money in my savings account so don’t think for a minute that I’m not a millionaire.
Wow, that’s amazingly shallow! I wonder how much business they get?
The way it works is you need to give a girl your phone number, so you just grab a piece of paper from your wallet, and there you are…she sees your balance, thinks you’re rich, and definitely calls you. (And girls could impress guys, too.)
One of my friends posted this the other day at a bulletin board we frequent. I pointed out that by having $629,000, his money isn’t insured at that bank and he’d be better served splitting his money between seven banks. Another friend pointed out that he didn’t even bother to find an in-network ATM and paid a fee.
The friend that posted it pointed out that it’s likely his “play” money, so he’s not really worried about losing it 529,000, and if you had $629,000 that you weren’t concerned about, would you bother to search out an in-network ATM?
Of course, this guy is going to get the exact sort of girl that this ploy will work on, so they’ll deserve each other. And that amuses me.
Yes, he will get exactly the kind of girl I have tried to avoid my entire life. I hope that she doesn’t sprain her ankle when she turns around to bail on him after she finds his real ATM receipt that says, “balance: $5.49”
Hey guys. I’m the owner of customreceipts.com. I’m getting a real kick out of the replies – most are pretty accurate.. =)
It’s a little hobby-business I run, mostly cause I happened to come across a thermal ATM receipt printer and came up with this idea. Some call it lame, and I do agree to an extent. I suppose as one of you put it, if the girl (or guy) you’re working over falls for it, they weren’t interested in you anyways so why not..
Thanks for the comments John,
I think it’s hilarious that you thought of it. Don’t get me wrong, if someone wanted to pay me $15 for some fake receipts, I’d take them up on it too. As a joke it’s hilarious. For those people that are really trying to keep up with someone else or falsely impress someone, I feel sorry for them. :)
