We're all working nine to five just to stay alive, so none of us want someone messing with our moolah.

Well, someone is definitely trying to mess with said moolah at the moment, because there's a fake fifty dollar note doing the rounds trying to fool us all. 

The only thing is, that instead of the eerily close copies we are used to being scared of, this fake is so obviously a fake that it has everyone laughing... 

The people of South-East Queensland have been delievered this beauty, with people working in stores such as McDonalds and IGA, to name a few.

The Warwick Daily News reported that this isn't the first time such problems have arisen, with Sergeant Graeme Frost explaining, 

"The fake notes weren't discovered until the businesses depositied their takings to the bank. These notes are extremely well done and difficult to spot and were only noticed by the banks."

Turn your attention to the dashed lines in the top right hand corner of the fifty dollar note above, plus the blue Chinese characters, and you should all be reminded: this is not what legal fifty notes look like

Keep a lookout, folks. 

Don't want your moolah or goods being traded for these little b***ards.
