A Florida woman is behind bars after attempting the most amateurish counterfeit scheme since the invention of the Xerox machine.

Police say 30-year-old Brandi Harden tried to use paper photocopies of $20 bills at Walmart and Applebee’s. A Walmart employee questioned Harden about a fake bill and she ran out of the store. Police were called, and they caught up to her two days later when she left her cellphone on a table in Applebee’s, where she’d used the fake cash to pay her bill.

Harden was arrested on charges of possession of counterfeit bills. She also faces additional drug charges after she was found in possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
