May 2019 Fake $100 bills from *** ATM AND NO THEY WILL NOT BULLY ME!

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.

So which branch was it then, since you're past the lychee milk and are strong on details? I've been with them for a few years, regularly use their ATMs downtown and never had any issues.

Did the mods censor the name of the bank? That’s chicken shit.
Is it? Are you telling me that you aren't aware of the bank being referenced? Whether it's been edited out or not, everyone knows. So why are you pushing a dead issue?
I'm pretty sure I do know the bank, but I follow the forums and Facebook groups closer than most. The OP is trying to warn people about a specific problem at a specific bank that has had a bunch of these complaints. Newcomers to this site or to this issue might have no other knowledge of this. Censoring posts because a mod decrees "I don't believe the poster" is terrible.

complaints of this nature against this bank go back at least 8 years.
i witnessed an incident at the SV branch 6 years ago
the victim came straight from the atm outside to complain

The entire style and rhythm of this poster is the same as the guy who was asking for a loan before who was connected to another poster of the same style too. I have no reason to doubt his story but have never experienced this happening.

Hah Raven,


That was me lol.

I wasn't scamming. I DID get my money though.

School finally broke and ponied up 300 bucks.

All is well.

Glad your thinkin of me...

xxxooo
Of course people are thinkin of you. Your doing a great service to Cambodia's youth by teaching.

Back to the OP. I am firmly in the aluminium hat camp, I am behind several VPNs and 2 TORs and I am even inside a Faraday cage so that stray electromagnetic nuclei cannot be intercepted, and even I don't have the time or the the inclination to concoct such a preposterous story. It's an obvious fraud.

The thing that would make make me doubt this account is the OP claiming that he received a fifty dollar bill from an atm that dispenses dollars in the following denominations 10,20 and 100. :hattip:

That money with “COPY” on the bottom corner is not counterfeit. It’s fake money that Khmer people can buy to throw in the fire as this sends the money to their ancestors in the afterlife. They make paper cars, paper houses, and paper money all for the same purpose. The money has the word “COPY” on it for obvious reasons. You can buy it a number of places including in giant stacks at Makro. Whether or not it actually came out of the ATM is speculation. That being said, you sat on the money for a while before accusing the bank of giving you fake money. This one’s on you. Just because “it’s already happened to a bunch of people” doesn’t mean the bank should just take your word for it and fork over $100. They have as much duty to protect themselves as you do. You don’t think a bunch of people tried this as soon as the first story broke thinking they were going to get a free $100? Maybe the bank has an internal problem, maybe they don’t. Regardless, it would take you <10 seconds to check your money when you get it, especially after hearing that there’s a local problem.

How hard is it to fan your notes and check under the view of the CCTV at the ATM? Use an ATM that is in its own cubicle???
