He's not the world's best counterfeiter. They obviously haven't been caught as yet, or probably never will. Also, this guy must have a lot of money left over hidden somewhere if he gave the police such a high amount.

For those of you saying "no way he got to kept 50 million": -He went to court after being caught with 1 million worth of fake 20's -At court he basically said "what if i can give you 200 million more to take out of circulation" for a deal -They cut his sentence, gave him the deal, and signed a plea agreement in which they would collect the last of the 200 at an undisclosed location on a certain date like a month later -After collecting the money, they had searched his home computers and found out he had ordered enough of the cotton/linen paper to print 250 million worth, but the plea agreement was already signed. -That last 50 mill of fake notes he was selling at 30% face value, so roughly 15mill profit he walked away with.

Nobody gets away with their sins! Counterfeiting is the same as stealing, even if the law doesn't catch you (and it will), GOD will catch you! THOU SHALL NOT STEAL!

Doing it his way (suppliers and warehouses) can get you caught quick but makes you more money. The other guy name Arthur J. Williams took longer time to get caught because he did it small without suppliers and such, but he didn't make much money lol.
