Chichester: Fake £20 notes featuring Jesus surface

A man in the village of Birdham, Chichester, found two counterfeit £20 notes with a picture of Jesus Christ on them.

In the bottom corner is a message that reads, “Don’t be fooled, Jesus is the real thing.”

There’s not much more exciting than finding stray cash on the street.

And let’s face it, who’s actually trying to find the person who dropped it?

To be fair to Raymond Brody, he was looking to the original owner after spotting a purple note on the ground while walking his dog near Chichester.

But soon the survival of the fittest set in and he pocketed the twenty to stick on his energy meter.

However, when he got home, Raymond was “sick in the stomach” to realize he had picked up a fake with a picture of Jesus Christ on it.

“Bank of Heaven” was written above it, along with the message, “Don’t be fooled, Jesus is the real one.”

Raymond told Sussex World: “It’s bad enough that anyone thinks throwing litter in the first place is a good idea, but in today’s economic crisis, 20 pounds on the floor can mean feeding a family for a week.

“To give you false hope in this way is horribly abominable.”

As bizarre as Raymond’s experience was, it somehow happened to him a second time.

He found the exact same note while walking his dog again last week.

Raymond said, “I was very tempted to write ‘stop breaking the law’ on it and put it in the church donation box, but I changed my mind.”

He thinks the counterfeit bills are particularly cruel during the cost-of-living crisis because “£20 can be a lot if you’re already struggling”.
