Man Allegedly Pays Ego Hair Salon for Dreadlocks with Fake $100 Bill

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.

I believe he may well be 'innocent' - any Caucasian who gets dreadlocks is probably too stupid to realize he is passing on counterfeit money.
You could be next.

Yes, good point Bedazzz. I just suggested to the mods to maybe take my post with the photo down.
She certainly doesn't deserve shaming, not that anyone was trying to do that.

Certain people have been exposed to fakes, others haven't. When I get money from an ATM, I check. I paid for a guest house in a small town recently, and she didn't look closely at the notes. Not everyone is aware of the fakes.

In my experience the $100 gets a thorough scrutiny - worthy of the KGB - whenever and wherever presented.

Personally, I just check the polymer band by feel and the color change ink 100 number by eye.

It's about time they changed the 50$ bill - most are downright tatty.
