"In my bars I make a point of accepting money in any condition... rips, holes, faded areas, tape...
I think it's just good customer service.
And some of the girls' English is not quite up to scratch. I've passed girls saying to customers who have given them a ripped note "your money shit, no good".
So we take any notes, and any hard foreign currency as well. Easy enough to change it later.
Once a month I take all the damaged notes to Acleda where they exchange them without question."

How did I not know this????

Put the torn note in your wallet.

Fill up at petrol station

Pay with torn note, make sure all other cash is hidden.

That's hilarious. They have a point though, fuck taking any note that's worth less than its face value at most money-changers. Where do all the dollars in circulation come from? Obviously individuals bring in a lot, as does trade, but do the banks buy in pallet-loads of new ones for their ATMs or what? Just asking for a friend who was very interested. :?

To check if the note is real, not if it's torn

Hope it works out. would be good to know.
I think I had posted before. When I was in Battambang I went to Acleda with £2000 in £20 notes. The casher was sorting through them! Two piles, one good, one not good, due to writing on them. I said stop due to the bigger pile being rejected. I took the cash to a money changer, he took the money to Acleda, he changed all with no problems.

Went to Acleda today and they would not accept it. Told me to go to Ly Hour, so looks like I will have to take a $30 hit. The moral of this story is count and check you notes carefully

if you have a "good" enough relationship with a bank they will change for you.
Money is not the problem, the problem is no money
