Punter complains after joke shop’s ‘Million Dollar Magic’ money printer failed to print real money
A JOKE store owner had the giggles when a bettor complained that a money spin didn’t print real money.
Miles Jackson, 42, sent five of his “Million Dollar Magic Money Makers” to a customer in the United States.
The £4.99 toys use rollers to print fake banknotes.
But the recipient sent an email asking for a ‘100% refund’ after being duped by online joke comments.
Giving it a star on Trustpilot, he fumed: “All the reviews that say he paid their rent and bills are lies.
“This article is a complete waste of time.”
Miles, who has run The Scarborough Joke and Magic Shop for 25 years, said: “I find it hilarious.
“What they thought they were buying does not exist.
“And if it existed, it would be illegal.
“It doesn’t actually turn the paper into real money – they bought it from a joke shop.”
This came after regular customers posted fake reviews.
One read: “I bought the money printer from the joke shop.
“It’s printing £50 notes faster than I can spend them.”
Married father of two, Miles added: ‘I had to add a disclaimer to the website to say it’s a gimmick and it doesn’t really print money out of thin air.
“In all these years, no one has ever mistaken a joke for something real.”
