$2 Bill Offer Leads To Big Bill

A full page newspaper ad convinced Lee Damoff that state pride would pay off. But he feels short changed after ordering eight, two dollar bills with Nebraska stamped on the front.

82 year old Damoff received the shipment that contained eight two dollar bills but all marked with commemorative stamps for other states, not Nebraska.

Damoff said, "I thought I'd get Nebraska, that's what the ad says, that's what I ordered and that's what they agreed to."
They is a private distributor called World Reserve Monetary Exchange located in Ohio.

Though still posting a B+ rating with the Better Business Bureau the Bureau is challenging the company's advertising after receiving 300 complaints the past three years.

The concern is that buyers understand the company is not affiliated with the Federal Reserve or Government and its not a bank.
Though the bills appear to be legitimate $2 bills.

Bureau President Jim Hegarty said, "There are concerns regarding confusion consumers have related to this company's advertising."

Lee Damoff is sending back his bills and demanding the Ohio company refund his money. Damoff said, "Its the principle of the thing. I don't mind losing $96 but I resent it doesn't say Nebraska."
