Fake $100 Notes

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Fake $100 Notes

Post by Joker Poker »

Was at WA the other night and bought a beer with one of the new $100 notes. Unbeknown to me, the person who had just been served before me also paid with a new $100 note, and there was a lot of screening going on. Turns out his note was rejected as a fake. Sphincter clenched, they checked mine, no problem.

Thought it might be worth posting this vid on 8 ways to detect the real thing. Painful narration but useful nonetheless.

Thanks for posting this, it was very helpful.

I know how to check the old bills but never thought to learn how with the new ones.
The cedar roasted asparagus has good chew. I don't know how to enjoy it, so I'll Instagram it instead.
