Materials - Bag/pocket full of change (worth $17) OR a bunch of wrinkly $1 dollar bills and maybe a $5 dollar bill too(worth $17) - A card (birthday card, Christmas card etc.) - An envelope - A pen Procedure 1 - Walk into a restaurant (coffee shop is the best for this or a fast food restaurant where the waiter comes to you) and sit down and wait for a waiter. 1.1 - While waiting, open up the card and get your pen out 2 - When the waiter arrives, make sure that he can see what you're doing 3 - Order a drink or something that you can take out of the store easily 4 - When the waiter comes back with your beverage ask him for a $20 dollar bill so that you give it to your brother (or nephew that you never see, or dad, or mom or whatever you want just make it a family member that you don't see often) and tell him that you all you have is change (or $1 dollar bills) 5 - When the waiter comes back with the $20, give him the change (or $1 dollar bills) and pretend to put the $20 dollars in the envelope (but really sneak it into your pocket) and seal it up BEFORE HE GETS TO COUNT OUT ALL OF THE MONEY 6 - Once he's done this he'll say your $3 dollars short, so what you do is you take your money back and say "Hold on, I have some extra money back in my car, just keep that envelope and I'll be back." Now the waiter thinks that the $20 dollar bill is in the card so he's totally cool with you leaving the $20 dollars there 7 - Now, just walk out of the store with your new $20 that you just made. TIPS When doing this, find the cheapest card you can find (or even make your own, or better yet.... steal your own I don't care what you do) because you don't want to waste too money on getting the card. Make sure that you have a nice tone, a nice conversation, and make sure that you act really nice to the waiter. Also, before doing this scam, make sure that there are CAMERAS, because if there are, just order something and leave.
