Cleaning Blackened Banknotes



< Prev. page          (You're on the last page)


A discussion started in 2009 but continuing through 2019

January 25, 2015

Sir, I'm also patient of the same disease of black $, also I read question and answers of peoples on the same issues on this forum but you did not give answer of one question that if somebody has their original dollar so how they can clean their black$ ? What is solution? Hope you will answer my question.

A. Hello cousin Rashid. We DID give the solution to clean real blackened money repeatedly: crushed vitamin C tablets. You'll see the same on youtube where the scammers who were caught explain how they darken a couple of real bank notes and how they clean them.

But then people say "Vitamin C tablets aren't working, so what should I try instead?". And the answer -- which they don't want to hear -- is "Nothing, because although you think you have your original money, you don't ... sorry, you have black construction paper or the black output of a xerox machine or other worthless black paper, and there is no way in the world to turn it into a banknote".

These victims clutch at straws; to toss them a straw like "try this, try that" when we know it can't work would be cruel.

A. Hi there, thanks for your eye opening column for many of us victims of the dollar/euro scams. I have been keeping this dollar notes that I got from an Indian friend for 3 years. Now, please follow me carefully. These notes are not black, they actually look like the real dollar but the colour and texture isn't quite there yet. Sometime back these notes were black and I personally saw them transform to what they are now. I have been searching for the right chemical combination to finish the work but over and over again I have been conned in so many different scams from the machine (to which I lost $35,000, money that was supposed to buy some gas enough to clean $3 million) to chemicals and finally to the scam whereby they tell you to come with original bills that are put in between the unprocessed ones to give them texture. Readers, I want to convince you that no matter how you think you're on the lookout for anything fishy, at some point they ask you to go bring something that they might use, something like water, a basin, tissue, foil paper or anything. That's the moment they switch your real money with some fakes they came with wrapped up in exactly the same way they would be doing in front of you. I have met all sorts of crooks some even work for the De la Rue (the company usually contracted by governments to make currency but I tell you please let mine be your experience too. Only a fool doesn't learn from other people's experiences. All of these people claiming that they can do the magic for you are just thieves. Please let's all learn and do clean businesses to better our lives. Am picking my pieces and trying to make up for the huge losses I made and debts I incurred.

Hi Lorna. Yes, as we've said, the scammers will keep changing some little detail to try to convince people that their pile of worthless paper is different. For example, some of the bills may be xeroxs of bank notes to try to tease you that you got some of the blackening off. But you are holding black paper or xeroxs, not banknotes.

Hi,

I am holding some black defaced currency; many technicians came and did the job only to clean 2 at a time and started to extract more and more money leaving me begging on the street. I have tested them and found to be original. Now from your replies to people I understand we can wash it with crushed Vitamin C tablets. Please tell me the process so that I can try and I am sure the results should be positive as I have the original defaced money.
Question: Should crushed vitamin C tablets be put in water to dissolve and then use one note to just keep for a while and remove.
Please help me with the process, I am desperate.

A. Hi Nish. I don't enjoy giving the same unhappy response to person after person, week after week, year after year -- but it may help dissuade the next victim.

WAKE UP! You don't have your original money and you don't have defaced currency, you have black trash paper. It makes absolutely no difference what chemicals you apply or how, you can't turn black scrap paper into money. Each time the scammers come, they bring a couple of real blackened bills and fool you that the couple of real bills they brought came from your worthless pile of black paper.

A. Hi Nisha,

What you can do ... take all notes and put it in normal water and see ... good notes will remain same and fake papers will become pulp.

Try this then you will start believing this thread of conversations.

Can we have the contact details of the victims to organise and connect to capture the scammers along with the support of the police.

Hi cousin mahuboob. I'm unfamiliar with the UAE, but here in the US we strongly discourage vigilante justice, and leave law enforcement to sworn officers. Plus, all the victims who want to contact the police and get organized know how to do it. The most likely outcome of revealing contact info would just be for the victims, who have high-credulity personalities*, to allow themselves to be victimized yet again.

* - My friend Tom P. noted that one reason scammers use outrageous stories, often full of misspellings -- which not one person in a hundred would believe -- is because it's a great "filter", so the scammers don't waste any time with the other 99, and only spend their efforts on people who will believe almost anything :-)

Dear sir
I have contacted the United Nations chemical Laboratory Department, Delhi for quotation for ssd chemical for cleaning Black currency [pounds]. They have informed me Rs.75,000/-[INR] for company registration fee only, and chemical cost [68000 GBP] plus any other whatever charges will be paid after cleaning of currency by their email letter.

After paying up above payment, they have informed me another Rs.250000/- INR to be paid for NRCC Certificate. However, I have paid up the same. But, now they have informed to pay Rs.1000000/-INR for Anti terrorism certificate and custom duty, which I cannot afford until my black currency is cleaned and they did not inform about this payment earlier. As per their information received Nobody or any companies, Diplomats and chemical laboratories have authorized for supply of ssd chemicals and cleaning the black currency except United States and United Kingdom government and US & UK Government give authorization to United Nations Chemical Laboratory only for supply of ssd chemical for cleaning of black currency [GBP].

Now They have complaint against me for recovery of 68000/-GBP, Which, I have not received any documents regarding the same, Payment receipts, etc. to date.
Also they have not provided their official Banker details for depositing the cash payment till.
Please advise me what to do. Can I complain against them to FBI/Interpol/CBI?
Regards

Hi Arvind. You apparently still believe in this magic nonsense, and are complaining that someone is not delivering the magic nonsense as expected and promised. Until you accept that the whole thing is nonsense and there is no real money in that stack of black paper, nobody can help you. FBI and Interpol don't care that still another gullible person has been scammed, since they have lists of thousands, but your local police might. Sorry.

Q. Hello ...

I read all the comments on this thread, and thanks for everyone who tried to explain the trick. So now I know I have my real money because I marked it, and the man is arrested now, so what I need now is to clean my money from whatever is on it, I know it's crushed vitamin c with water but what kind of vitamin c?
Thanks

A. I give up :-(

But if you keep asking, someone will surely tell you that vitamin C won't do it and you need expensive Tebi-matonic, Vectrol Paste or S.S.D. solution -- and you will probably be foolish enough to buy it. Your family has my sympathy.

Hi

I receive below mentioned email every month, please share the below mail as an example so readers of your site are not cheated and become victim for such fraud people.

I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact address from the computerized search. My name is Mr. Karim Zakari. I am the Bill and Exchange (assistant) Manager of Bank of Africa Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of Sixteen million five hundred thousand United State of American dollars (16.5 MILLION USA DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr. Kurt Kuhle from Alexandra Egypt who died along with his family in Siber airline that crashed into sea at Israel on 4th October 2001.

Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as a next of kin to foreign customer. The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be transferred into the bank treasury after (15) years if nobody is coming for the claim.
I have agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses that might occurred during the business and 58% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage as indicated.

Please I would like you to keep this transaction confidential and as a top secret as you may wish to know that I am a bank official.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Xxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxx

A. Hi cousin Majid. The scammers will try to enflame people's emotions & prejudices, because emotionality and prejudice can distract people from careful reasoned thinking, but no government anywhere is involved in this scam.

I am very tired of, almost daily, responding to crying readers who continue to insist "Yes, everyone else's blackened currency is fake, but MY blackened currency is real, I was watching it so carefully, so help me remove the blackening".

It's simply ridiculous that people continue to waste their lives on this.

Certain doubts on the changing of black dollar

September 8, 2018 -- this entry appended to this thread by editor in lieu of spawning a duplicative thread

Q. I am in Saudi Arabia. Certain days before I had to deal with the black money. The technician came and illustrated the way to change the money, I saw the method of doing and the money was usable ... but during the process he used a 500 Saudi Riyal from me with the activation powder which was kept folded in an aluminium foil, and that powder was used for changing 5 black moneys of 100 USD with the chemical. I want to know is there any need for the 500 saudi Riyal for cleaning?

thumbsdown Hi Daniel. Please don't involve any of that 'money from others for investment' in this scam or you'll go to jail. 'Black dollars' is a complete scam, and the 'technician' will disappear with your money, leaving you with a box of black paper that never was dollars or riyals and never will be.

What he does is he blackens a few pieces of real money with an easily removable dye, and then removes that dye in front of you. The trick is in using sleight of hand to fool you into believing that a big box of black paper is the same stuff as the few real bills he removes the dye from. But, as Mark Twain said, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled", so you probably won't believe me :-(

October 18, 2018

Very interesting thread, I'm actually right in the middle of this Black-money "scam" or opportunity! The approach started on linkedin. A respectable gentleman from Zambia, who already added +500 contacts in Oman many whom I know (all created within 5 days!). He starts off by saying he wants to invest in Oman and needs an advisor. He's targeted me because I am a businessman and I would not refuse an offer to direct him to Real Estate projects.
He says he was in Oman, but returned home and offers to fly his assistant to meet me. I meet his assistant and then a diplomat flies soon after bringing all $5 million in cash for investment.

Then they pull the black-money scam using SSD chemical or whatever, a white chemical to remove the blackness. And immediately after goes to the money exchange to change it to our local currency.

I act amazed and fascinated. I now need to organize a place for them to bring all $5 million blackened cash to change it. All I need to provide is the place, a big pot and that's it. 24 hours and the deal is done! They leave all the $5 million with me to invest in real-estate.

Simple....

The main problem I will face is changing $5 million dollar worth of bills to our local currency to invest. So they will give me 6 month to do that.

What's my next step?

! Hi Ted,
Like I said, nice thread. You're absolutely right, I'd lose my family, business and life essential going that route. I'm not mad. It's hard work earning money and nothing in life comes for free.
My decision was to just cut my self off from the group. Money Laundering is not my thing.

A. Hello this black money Scam has been going on for a long time . I was exposed to it in 1975 in South Africa . Ozone water will turn black ink clear. I have had a hobby called Hydro - Metallurgy for about 60 years I extract metals out of solution. I have never been bored in my life . All you have to do is make some Ozone Water and wash the black notes with this. You can buy a small Ozone water maker on Amazon.com for about $65.00 and you are in business selling. Good luck.

A. Hi Johan. It may be true that ozone water will remove the iodine or black ink as quickly and easily as oxygen bleach or vitamin C tablets, but neither an ozone generator nor anything else can ever turn the plain black paper which people are holding into bank notes. The scammers already removed the blackening from the one or two actual bank notes, and left with all of the victim's money, leaving them only black construction paper, film wrappers, or xerox paper

Please see the short video on this thread to understand the situation. Thanks.
