By now, everyone has seen or gotten the new $100. bills. While at Hershey this week, we had a few through the booth. Yesterday I sold a lighted sign to a gentleman who retired from the Oil Industry. He was paying for the sign with new $100's. He pointed out the gold ink bottle with the Liberty Bell inside. Then he told me a little story about a close friend of his who was travelling up I 83 to Carlisle, last week to the car show. He was pulled over in Virginia by a State Trooper. The officer told him he was speeding. Then he asked the man how many guns he had on board? The driver said none, as was the truth. The officer then asked why he had so much cash in his truck? The guy was shocked that the police knew he had cash but thought it best to explain that he was on his way to a swap meet to buy and sell car parts. The money was for that. Then he questioned the officer about how he knew? The Trooper said that there is a chip in the Liberty Bell which can be tracked by air and targeted if the need arises. That is the real reason he was stopped. Now, I do not have any personal knowledge of this but I would not be at all surprised if it was all fact? Has anyone else heard anything about this? If true, it is very disturbing. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

I believe it. I think it targets drug transactions, but, of course, no one escapes. Another step in taking away our freedoms.

Yes I believe it. The new bills like the 20 have RFID chips in them just like your passports do. Lots of countries are doing things like this. Scary...

Even if there were secret RFID tags inside of $100 bills, they could not have a significant battery. RFID tags used in toll road devices can be detected up to 300 feet in good conditions because they have a battery. RFID tags used in the thick "smartcard" credit cards can only be read within 3 feet, usually much less. Not by an aircraft.

It is common practice for law enforcement to ask "loaded" questions, not only to get an answer, but mainly to read the reaction of the person in non-verbal actions. Asking about guns, explosives, drugs or cash will often make a perp noticeably uncomfortable.

Thank you, Jim, for a voice of reason. I've also had my share the past couple of days of pictures depicting various individuals holding up perfect bodied 10' rattlesnakes they had killed. Evidently had scared them to death since there were no marks on them.

Jim is 100% correct on the distance. That is why retail stores use them in items to see when they get stolen.

I appreciate the correct information. That is why I posted it here in the forum. I expected to get a more reasonable side to the story. Thanks, Paul www.severngaspumps.com

It's interesting what people will believe.

It use to be in the way of joking that such stories were told, now it's seems the intent is to spread real rumors.

And anyone who thinks a police officer isn't going to use social engineering on you, well we see the results now don't we.
