Fake Notes

Yesterday my salesperson gave me 4 stacks of RM5 to be exchanged for bigger notes. I gave a stack to my cashier to count and she found out that 4 of the notes were fake ones.

they looked so real at a glance..

but look carefully, they were fake ones!

Well, we had received some fake notes before..
we are very careful nowadays..

    1. those fake notes can be so real and difficult to notice, especially when you are handling such big bulks, many would have overlooked..

    2. i think your salesperson didn't do that with intention and sure he would be surprised to know there are fake notes in the stacks he has given..

    3. anyway just 4 pieces of RM5 isn't a big amount.. so what did you do with those 4 pieces of fake notes??

      Delete
    4. yes, she is very careful about that..
      the salesperson was there, so we returned to him..
      he didn't check them earlier..

    5. Luckily that man was still there to know that it was his own notes. I made mistake once to discover badly torn note and returned to the shop. The owner refused to change and said it was not hers!!!!

    6. I always make sure we check those notes first..

  4. They are fake because they do not have the clear portion (see through plastic portion) at the left, is it?

    I am also curious - what did you do with them?

    1. Maybe you can put the real and fake one side by side and pinpoint the differences.

      Delete
    2. It'll be a good thing to learn :)

    3. ok, will try to do that next time..I have returned the fake ones to the salesperson.

    1. Now forger very clever. they know ppl will look out for big notes so they forge small denomination instead

  9. I will quickly use it as if it is a real one. The best place is to use it at the wet market.

  10. I am so bad right? Cannot blame me one, because I can't tell which one is real and which one is fake also. Muahahaha!

    1. if we are innocent, ok with that. But if on purpose, I can't do that. :)

  11. Wow they are so real. A friend demonstrated how to find out if its real. Hold the note on the left hand with the Agong's pixz on top, then flick the note with your right hand. If the Agong's headgear didn't fall off then the note real. aiya chehhhh.

  12. Hmm a lot of fake notes these days, those cashier also scan the notes before accepting.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. normally we don't scan the smaller notes..

  13. Fake notes...

    Cashiers usually check the big notes but not small ones. Your staff is good to detect them.

    ReplyDelete
  14. NVM, learn from experience then. In a glance its hard to determine it is real or fake.

    ReplyDelete
  15. well unfortunately im unfamiliar with your bills,
    but if you said its fake perhaps it is

    1. the uv light proved that they were fake ones..

  16. here in our country thats a bit prone as well,
    its some sort of modus operandi

    ReplyDelete
  17. i think your shop should have a money checker
    those with violet lights,
    i just dont know it it works on you paper bills as well

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. we have but we use it for bigger notes..

      Delete
  18. back then, when i was still working on a fatfood chain we have that checker
    and very bill form 100 - 1000 pesos has to be checked on that first

    ReplyDelete
  19. by the way we also have fake coins here
    those cashiers here has magnets on the money container those that would stick on it was fakes

    ReplyDelete
  20. store such as yours will lose a lot through this dirty tactics and the government i think as well

    ReplyDelete
  21. perhaps just be more cautious next time,
    it was most advisable for you to install a money checker at every counter

  23. Hi Wenn,

    I found a news report dated 2007 here:

    http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2007/1/4/nation/16473665&sec=nation

    that stated:

    "KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia has denied a news report on a fake RM5 polymer banknote.

    The bank said in a statement yesterday that the report was misleading. It claimed that investigations by the bank showed that the banknote was genuine and that the faded print was caused by chemical reaction."

    And about the security features of RM5 here:

    http://www.bnm.gov.my/polymer/c1.htm

    Which security feature was missing from the RM5 notes shown in your photo?

    1. they were almost alike..but when scan with the uv light, they were really fake ones..

    2. Ah, so you have a uv light fake notes detector. In this case, you will never be deceived by fake notes. :)

      Delete
    3. yes, just hope the cashiers don't take it for granted..

      Delete
    4. What an interesting article!

      I saw one Indon cashier who always tossed RM50 notes over many times to examine besides looking at the water marks. She told me that her boss will deduct her pay if found fake notes. She kena so many times no matter how hard she tried to check.

      Delete
    5. well, she should use the uv checker..

      Delete
  24. So.. what to do with the fake notes? I think I will not be able to differentiate when I receive notes like that...

    ReplyDelete
  25. My boss gave me a fake RM50 he received and I still keep them till now. It looked so real with rough texture. It was so easy to see it was a fake but most people were not observant.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. we gave to the bank without knowing that one of the RM50 notes was fake and the bank cut it into half..then returned to us. :)

  26. Almost all countries in the world have faked currencies of their own circulating. Probably the richer the country, the more fakes will float.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love to look at foreign currencies especially their notes. I paid attention to their security features and I think our Malaysian notes have been upgrading & improving the security lines and transparent water marks! We are so kiasu and kiasi.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm not sure about foreign currencies..

      Delete
  28. I started to see some companies preferring me to pay with credit cards instead so that they do not have to keep so much cash! That will also minimize fake notes.

    1. better that way than risk getting some fake notes..

  29. It'll be so troublesome if u need to scan every note (big n small) that u've received. Sigh... there r so many cheaters out there. :(

    1. true..sometimes very troublesome..
