Scary stuff, huh? Well, do not fear. Here's a warning sign if the money in your pocket might be tainted. Look at the picture of the person on the bill. Underneath you'll see a name. If the person has one of the following names, take immediate steps!
If you find a bill with one of those names under the picture on the front, put the bills in a zip-lock bag and mail it immediately to my Official Tainted Money Reception Station:

Columbus, GA 31902

UPDATE: Obviously great minds think alike.
