Dear to all,

Last week i withdraw 500USD in a Canadia bank ATM in Kratie, north Cambodgia.
I got 3 real notes and 2 counterfeit ones, the one marked "COPY" on it.

Of course in the wonderful Cambodgia, no-one really care of my complain, either the bank and of course the police.

I assume some people who works in the ATM note recharging replace some original bills with fake ones, then taking the money for themself. This is obviously scandalous and never seen in my life everywhere else in the world. Be careful!

Advices :
Withdraw in ATM in front of a bank at opening time and check carefully all your bills : smelling, blue lines, sound and touching. It seems more and more fraud like this hapening here in Cambodgia.
I will never travel again in this country.

Glad I don't use an ATM card. Saving the $8-$15 annual fee for one seems like the least of my worries!
