WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having money in the bank can help just about anyone get laid. sells fake ATM receipts that look incredibly realistic.

They’re printed on the same thin thermal paper as the real deal and can be customized to include accurate dates, a person’s name, fake account number, and bank balance of choice.

They even boast legit-sounding bank names like “American Capital.”

Creator John Delisle says the slips are a great way to get attention from a stand-offish stranger.

Most people keep one crumpled up in their pocket and casually pull it out to write their phone number on it.

Once the stranger sees the massive bank balance, they’re suddenly interested, which often results in a one-night stand.

Delisle says more realistic balances – like $70,000 to $300,000 – work best, though some people like to pretend they’re millionaires.

They’re usually outed the minute their hook-up sees their crappy car or tiny apartment.
