Don’t modern ATMs refuse counterfeit notes?
I’m sure my aunt said that when she worked for Deusche Bank. That was 15 years ago and the machine would reject any fake notes.

People with fake notes often try to cover their backs by saying something on social media. Or they’ve been scammed since removing the cash.

Just took out some cash from ABA counter (because non of the machines had any!) took 45 minutes. 30 mins waiting and 15 mins for her to count it, feel it front and back, go off to do something else then count it again!
Why do they always do that? Walk off and do something unrelated? Maybe she’s the senior assistant to the assistants manager.


It's called '' multi-tasking ''. Younger generation Asians are able to do several jobs at once with only one brain and serve several customers making several mistakes along the way. Have you not seen how they can drive a car while babysitting a kid on their lap, while talking to their friends all at the same time.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Silly moi. They are so much more efficient.

Maybe one of them could have multi tasked the ATM with cash.

A warning to anyone using the massage parlours on and near St 172.

I went there last night but made the stupid mistake of just getting money out of an ATM.
I thought I was playing safe by putting my pants on the bed beside me instead of the clothes hook by the door.

Only when I got back to my room did I notice the fake 100usd bill and was also missing 40. I thought straight away the ATM had given me the fake bill but remembered reading this thread and realised I had been robbed during the massage. There must have been someone hiding in the room who came out and stole the money and swapped the 100usd bill . Didn't hear a thing.

I'm down 140usd and was tempted to call the police but don't want my mug plastered all over the internet.

Two Aussie backpackers claimed they got a dud $100 from ABA ATM at Come Here Restarant on 19 & 172. I was about to use it.
I walked them to the ABA branch in Central Market where they tried to complain
Maybe it did happen, or maybe a badly devised scam as ABA will no doubt tell them to F.O. i really don't know for sure.
Just wanted to give an alert, avoid this ATM (or draw out less than $100) fo
