Mr. Tory, the manager of a local finance company, was walking down his street when he found a $100 bill by the curb. He picked it up, noted the serial number, and went home. Mrs. Tory told her husband that they owed the liquor store $100, so he gave the bill to his wife to pay the liquor store. The owner of the liquor store owed the butcher $100, so he gave the bill to the butcher, who then went to a farmer, and purchased a lamb with the $100. The farmer remembered he owed the finance company $100, so he took the same bill to them to pay his debt. Upon careful examination, Mr. Tory discovered that the bill was counterfeit. By this time, the $100 bill had paid $400 in debt. Which transactions turn sour and who loses what?
