Banknotes is a fascinating collection of the actual notes and security camera images used during unarmed robberies. There seems to be a strange correlation of polite language and unsuccessful attempts. Crime pays, but it doesn’t pay to be nice!

I have a gun in my bag.
Give me $5,000 please.
Thanks a bunch.
