Default A Scam ?

Do You Count Your Coins Before You Roll Them ?

If you are not counting your coins before you place them in the paper rolls you are probably throwing away your money just like I used to. I just went to Wells Fargo and the lady teller realized that I had overloaded my paper rolls after she tried to place them inside a special tray and they wouldn't fit in. My quarters, dimes,nickels and pennies exceeded the required amount. I had like 7 rolls of quarters 3 rolls of dimes and two of nickels plus my pennies. The bank saved me $11 dollars on what I thought was 79 dollars worth of cash. Therefore, I deposited $90 dollars into my safe deposit box like I had just told you.

Fellows, it looks like those paper rolls are a scam designed to overload the rolls with coins. Only if you count them you are safe from wasting your money. Be careful !

Do you still roll? There are coin-counting machines that will do all the work for you. I believe TD Bank offers the service. BTW, I am not affiliated with them ... just used them a few times.

Good advice and sounds wise. With the advent of currency counting machines, the validity of the words stated here seems to lost it force and footing. I appreciate it because care is better than cure.
