When you have an 'accident' i.e, if you shake the trees, sometimes a beehive will fall out and the bees chase you and sting you, you get compensation, which basically they send you a letter with some bells in it. Its not really worth it unless you shake a lot of trees...

400 bells per day if you get stung by all four bees... but you HAVE to save and quit each time and start the game again. XP Irritating. Anyway, it kinda eventually pays itself off, but you have to NOT run away from bees for about a month (or a week or two if you do the on/off thing with your game constantly), and not catch more than one so it will fully pay itself off. And after that, if you feel like shaking trees and taking the sting, you get 100-400 bells each day... which is easier to do just picking up a couple of seashells each day, honestly. So the bees might be barely worth it, but not in my mind.
I've never had counterfeit paintings the last few times I've played, surprise surprise, but if you get reimbursed, they have to somehow be worth more than the 6000 bells you've spent. If it takes too long, I wouldn't advise it, though.
