A business inadvertently gives you counterfeit money — are you stuck with it? In most cases, yes. But what if that business happens to be a branch of the federal government? Los Angeles resident David Lipin found himself asking this question the other day after he cashed a $1,000 Postal Service money order at a West Hollywood post office. He said the postal worker handed him 10 $20 bills and eight $100 bills. Lipin, 43, said he then stopped at a nearby gas station to fill his tank.
