It’s things like this that make me love stupid people. A young couple working together passed 13 counterfeit $100 bills at an Amsterdam  store before being arrested on felony forgery charges, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department said yesterday morning.

Ethan M. Whitman, and Carley M. Goguen, were arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument. Goguen also was charged with grand larceny. Sheriff’s Department Investigator Bradley Schaffer said Whitman was a clerk in the electronics department at the Target department store in the town, where he sold $1,227 in merchandise to Goguen, his girlfriend, on April 30.

Schaffer also stated-

“The quality is so poor, we’re certain no reasonable person who’s handled money would believe these were authentic bills,”

The couple was arraigned in Town Court. Whitman is being held at the Montgomery County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail. Gougen was released after posting $10,000 bond.

This is why we keep the Monopoly money at home that stuff won’t pass here, but you can try Canada I hear they will take anything!
