Money for a Clean World
BlueBill Resist Exploitation
   Home      Discussion

Banks have been circulating BlueBills since the inception of the project, though many banks are leary of BlueBills before they do the research.

Nevertheless after 2 years and nearly $1400 in BlueBills circulated (that we know of) and circulation around the nation, we got the first BlueBill rejection we've heard of, and from a long-time friend! Her arguments would be interesting enough to others to post here.

It was Aug. of 2014. When offered a free BlueBill and hearing the explanation, she said she was skeptical about the whole concept, saying that she believed that, a) it makes no difference what color money is, BlueBills could be used for ill; b) people won't accept them (despite the 100% record so far); c) it won't change anything; and d) that people would still pass them on regardless of their own disbelief. So we tried to call her bluff. Standing in front of an ice cream shop, we asked if she would prove us wrong by buying a cone with our BlueBills, despite the fact that she didn't believe in them. Unfortunately she refused the invitation. This seemed the perfect proof of our argument, but of course it was lost on her.

Well, at least she gets to go down in history as the first!
