Introduction: Take the Money and Run

how to make ten bucks REAL easy.

Step 1: Find a Person

This is real easy. find someone with 20dollars in cash.
(you will also need 20 dollars)

Step 2: Almost There...

Have the person with 20 dollars place the 20 on a table.
You also, put the 20 on the table.

Step 3: You Almost Have Made 10 Dollars!

Ok, so, next, you ask the person, "would you pay me 30 dollars for this 40 dollars on this table?" Of course he will say yes.

Step 4: Ow Its Done

This is a bit hard to explain, but i will do my best.

So you each put 20 dollars on the table right?
so now there is 40 dollars on the table.
your victim, paid you 30 dollars for the forty on the table.
you only put in 20 so you made 10 bucks



(oh yeah, this wasnt my idea)

It reminds me of the Abbott and Costello gag. "I need change. Do you have two twenties for a ten?"

good idea but I don't think many people would fall for it

You have to think about it, which most people don't (Think, that is.)

It dosn't need to be $20. It can be any ammount, and the ammount the other person gives you needs to be around 3/4 of the total ammount.

 I tried to do it on my brother. He didn't have $20 cash. Only a $20 gift card, $7 in change, and a $10 bill...

want to know how to identify if a bill is real? this is the simplest way, and you can do it anywhere without anything. What to do: hold it in the light. somthing should appear on the bill 5$ - 5s should appear 10$ - a face should appear in the white circle 20$ - a face should appear

But then you gave 20 to start, and ended up with 10.

author
dodo91 (author)SanjayMaru19942009-03-14

no, you ed up with 30. you put 20 to start with and got 30
your victim gives: 20 + 30=50
you give: 20 + 20 he gave = 40
you just pinched 10 dollars from his wallet.

no no no the other guy is paying you thirty for the forty on the table but you only put in twenty to the forty so he is giving you ten extra dollars

I'm confused. Wouldn't they be making 10 bucks too?

author
andrew13 (author)King Crab2008-09-02

author
King Crab (author)andrew132008-09-03

I know I make money out of it. I figured it out a while ago. You're useless. That didn't help at all. Thanks for trying, Dr. Fail.

author
King Crab (author)andrew132008-11-27

And 'ur' = 'your' and it should be 'you're'

=)

author
King Crab (author)andrew132008-11-17

I'm stupid? Look at your spelling. "ur" "nopewenty" Good game.

nice idea. i might actually tryt this but with lower amounts cause i dont have much money...well im looking for an awesome lego set , but that is all i have enough for

author
andrew13 (author)arrow shot2008-08-28

if you put in, say ten each make sure the amout you want him to buy the twenty(10plus10:20)is higher then the amout you put in.

author
andrew13 (author)2008-08-28

sorry, but i dont remember.

author
Weissensteinburg (author)2008-08-23

Ahh, it took me a minute, but I get it. They're giving you 30 dollars in order to keep what's already theirs, and your 20. That's clever.

author

took me a few also. probably my favorite way to make money!

author
collard41 (author)2008-08-23
oh, so you ask your friend to buy the money back.
