How to cook your money and multiply it

Two men convinced a bar owner in rural South Africa she could multiply bank notes just by boiling them in a chemical solution. They then proceed with a demonstration by boiling a 10-rand (1 euro) note in the solution to produce three new notes with different serial numbers.

They then persuaded the bar owner to withdraw 1,000 rand to be boiled to become thousands of rand. She then withdrew the money but before it was cooked the police was tipped off.
