What would you do if you accidentally shredded $6,600 in cash? Over here, shoot my self comes to mind, but in Taiwan there is help available. When a fellow named Lin accidentally shredded T$200,000 (US$6,600) he turned it over to the forensics division of the Taiwanese Justice Ministry's special investigation unit. They help restore damaged cash FOR FREE. One of their forensic scientists was able, in seven days, to reassemble Mr. Lin's cash well enough for the man to receive full value for it. That's one very lucky and I dare say, very happy man!

a man who owns his own plastics factory is dumb enough to shred all that money?!

Scan the pieces onto a computer and run some pattern matching software and viola!

The "weird" thing here is that the government agency did it "for free" like, you know, they were public servants or something.

I believe the same bureau handles bills being taken out of service because of age and wear.. especially low denominations. The banks send them in for new ones.
