Receipt for disaster

Filed under: media,Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 4:45 pm

“Trying to impress that hottie at the bar? Money talks. Hand out your number on the back of one of our fake ATM receipts. They’re a players [sic] dream come true.”

Where to begin (other than with a warning against the risks of fake-identity theft)?

Let me just say this, and not for the first time: You know how people hesitate to meet people online, for fear that they’ll, you know, lie? And how I always say hey, people lie in bars?


One more thing: if there’s not a romantic comedy about a guy who uses one of these on a girl who (inexplicably) turns out to like him and then he has to maintain the lie through all sorts of highjinks that make him look like he’s rich, which totally works until it doesn’t and then she hates him but then comes back, and he learns something about life, love, and himself, then I have $782,012 in my bank account. Hey, wait.


  1. It’s definitely a fake – whose bank charges $1.25 for a terminal fee???

  2. Because nothing demonstrates imaginary financial savvy like letting $780K sit in your imaginary checking account.

  4. First off, thanks for the post. =)

    Just thought I’d mention that although it seems most assume the products are targetted at men, around 40% of our customers are women. I guess gold-digger is a common trait.

    Regarding the transaction fees: that’s quite common at many terminals. Worst I’ve seen was in New Orleans, $20 terminal fee (during Mardi Gras).

    Regarding the poor financial planning: yeah, only an idiot has over 20k in a bank account, savings should work for you, not just sit there. I suppose the liars out there can come up with suitable explanations, or just go with a more reasonable 100k balance. Still plenty enough to get you laid.
