Hello all,

I forgot about the cash being RFID'd, because it was said that they were working on doing so, or at least thinkng about it. Well,,, that time is near. Below is an article I've dug up that I think you'll all be very shocked to read and see.

If you ever thought I was kidding about your privacy and the tracking going on, you'll soon agree that I'm giving you all the "heads-up".

http://www.prisonplanet.com/022904rfidtagsexplode.html

And I can tell you so much as to why they're tracking cash. But read this, and start microwaving your money. As long as the serial no# on one side is intact, and at least half of it's intact on the other side of the bill, the banks MUST let you trade in your money.

TIP: Do like I've been doing.... trade your money in for gold. It's a neutral, natural commodity of this world that's worth money. Gold is accepted everywhere in this world, and has more value than the green back.

Well your local grocery store wont accept gold will they?

I have some of those newest 20 dollar bills. I can see no rfid in it. I am scared to microwave my bill and ruin it though.

I dont see the point in puting them into money. Unless you were to have a account they could not track how your money was spent. Money gets passed from person to person. In order to track it everybody would have to have a account and have to scan the money before getting it from someone else(like in a sale) and before spending it.

This is a older article but it is a good one about RFID.

http://www.rfidjournal.com/article/articleview/523/1/2/

Explains better on the unlikely hood of the government ever tracking money.

UPDATE:

RFID in money is a myth. Try it yourself.
http://www.rfid-weblog.com/50226711/money_...r_rfid_myth.php

You can see a rfid chip and its not there like I said above.

I was using a LED flashlight to shine through the bill and there is NOTHING there.

Of course your $20. bills or any bill with any type of shiny markings or holograms will explode in the microwave! Posted Image
I think someone has way too much time on his/her hands,and if this is a topic of great interest to you,maybe you should be posting this hoaxy weird stuff in a more appropriate type of forum .

Not true. I've nuke 6 $20 bills and a $10 and nothing happened. New bills I might add.

It's called research. I've spend countless hours learning about the New World Order and the effects it's going to have on people. I'm not one to lay quietly and just wait for things to happen, then it'll be too late. I can also understand if this subject is too much for you to bare. Alot of people feel that way too. It's something we're not willing to believe nor accept. You can always turn the cheek the other way, but there is some serious stuff going on, and if you're an American don't expect your mainstream news station to tell you the truth about what's going on. Their job is to dumb down the population.

I don't believe anyone would/could make up a story about RFID'd cash, then nuke their own money. Some things can be seen with the human eyes, and still not believed. Although nothing is to be taken by it's surface appearance, but a little bit of reseach can and will uncover what you're seeking out. But, we all have the freedom to believe whatever we want.

This topic is where it belongs... right here. It's a general chat discussion. I would imagine that the RFID chip I got with my hard drive is a hoax, and all the other items now being RFID'd. Again, you're free to believe as you will, but if I were you, I wouldn't sleep on it.

I do agree that tracking the cash is too much of a hassle, and it'll be hard to do. But that's why they're moving to a cashless society. They are going to do away with the paper money in a few years or so. But the reason they're tracking money now is to monitor your spending. And mainly people that go to ATM's, and those that have bank accounts are the most vulnerable.

There's not much left to do with the paper money to stop counterfeiting except stop making it altogether. And also, today, the $1 bill right now is worth exactly .04cents. The American cash is losing it's value and many countries right now stop accepting American money. I wonder why? My guess is that they don't want their money tracked either.

On another note: I can show you a video that was made from the the Univeristy of Massachusetts where a few professors have showed AND proved that those new electronic voting machines can be rigged to make votes count for whoever they want to win. I just now saw on my local news here where people are already complaining that their votes weren't counted. All the same, I'd bet some would say the "myth" about the electronic voting machines are a hoax.

They're not accepting U.S. money because it has lost considerable buying power. The Euro has more economic strength.

What does RFID stand for?

They are NOT tracking money. Those rfid chips cannot track anything. They are not even in the US bills....
If they were there not much more than UPC labels are. More of a way to keep up with the bills maybe but they CANT track how you spend your money or recieve it with the RFID chips even if they were in your money.

Maybe some of you heard about this new tracking that the US Government discovered.

About 2 weeks ago here on the news, the US Government has put out a warning on Canadian coins. The US Government says that they have obtained Canadian coins that have tracking devices in them, and warned the public to be extra careful when getting change back from where you get it.

Although I knew about the tracking devices being put in money (bills), and I also learned that they were implementing it into metals, I never suspected coins. But heeyyyy, it's metal too.


On another note of the same subject..........
I know no one want to blow up their money, and I don't either, but there is a safe way to check "bills" for tracking.

All you need to do is run the edge of a credit card, playing card, or something similar across it, and if a tracking chip is in there, you'll feel a lump as you move across it. Very simple,,,, very effective. So there's no reason to not check our money since there is a safe way to do it. And if you should happen to find it in there, all you would need is a razor blade, or an exacto/sculpting knife, and cut around it to cut it out. I'm sure no one will notice that a bill is missing an eye, or where ever else it may be.

But check the search engines, and I'm sure there is news about it online.

Walkman, i know exactly what you are talking about. Gillette is already putting RFID chips on some of their products. the chips are the size of the dot on a small 'i'.

the government does have a plan to RFID all paper money so they can track what you spend it on. it is not unrealistic to install scanners into all cash registers. can you imagine being audited on your cash?

for all of you who think this is just conspiracy theory, wait until May of 2008. as an American you will be required to obtain a national ID card with RFID technology. without it you will not be able to board a plane, train, etc... Your dollar is worth about 4 cents on the global market in true monetary terms.

cowsgonemadd3, why do they have a right to track what i spend my money on? Big Brother!!

If I'm correct in my assuption, many of our grocery stores are 'tracking'?

In order to get a sale price on an item, one must have a 'Safeway' card, for instance - and that card, in turn, tells the store what we are buying and how we are paying?

Don't like the idea that without that card, one has to always pay full price - but I wonder how much harm can be in a store tracking what is their most popular items, etc?
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Man, you people are paranoid.

Tracking people through RFID money is a dumb idea. You could use it to track cash flow, which banks and economists could be interested in. But people? No. If your government wanted to track you they would track your mobile phone, not the money.

paranoid perhaps, but for me it comes down to a cabal of power making decisions for me. it is an intrusion of privacy. whether they mean to be innocuous or not, it violates my civil rights. the more that people ignore the erosions of their rights, the further this will go.

how much information is too much?
