Even though it's legal tender, a retailer or office that deals with exchange of cash, can rightfully refuse to accept payment if the payment method is deemed unjust or unworthy.

For example, the Kmart store I work at can't do Cheque's anymore, as the machines used for processing them are no longer in service.

But cash, being legal tender, cannot be declined as a form of payment.

This story is actually from Australia, a person can refuse to accept cash in small amount of coins totalling more than $5. This story resulting the the parking ticket office sending another letter out to he man detailing that payment was still due and the coins were kept in the safe for his pick-up as they would not accept them. In the end it was a complete fail attempt at trolling.

Or it must be posted that you don't accept coins as payment for x amount.

You guys all are talking about how this ruined the clerks day and what not, You know what she probably did? put the money aside set his account on hold and let the ******* in accounting deal with it, if he's short he will be billed accordingly.

Ok, then it ruined the ******* in accounting's day. The point is that he gave someone a **** load of extra work for something they had nothing to do with the ticket and that he caused by breaking whatever parking rules there were.

***** they would take that **** to the bank and pour it into the ******* coin counter. do you not save change in jars and take it into the bank?

in australia, 5c is not a legal tender for anything above $5 i think. backfired!!!

The guy was Australian, and within Australia there is a by law not allowing you to make a transaction with five cent pieces above five dollars

so technically,

he broke the law whilst try to pay for a fine where he broke the law

_The more you know!___

I got a 158 dollar ticket from a camera for not stopping long enough before turning red it was like 5 seconds and i stopped like 2. a cop would of not even pulled me over if i did that,but since it was a camera. I had to pay 158. and this guy is doing that on a 60$ ticket. Warning camera tickets are 100+ to pay for the camera.

I have never paid a red light or speed camera ticket. Go in and invoke your constitutional right to face your accuser.

because the people who take the money for the fine actually have control over that **** ...

my dad told me about some old guy who lived in Volusia, very well off but didn't look it dressed in normal clothes, was looking for a car and goes onto a carlot, the salesman ignored him at first then asked him to leave because he doesn't look likes he belongs, the very next day he went and bought a new car from the salesman using only coins the carlot's deal was that the salesman had to count it to get the sale.
