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.

After all this, I still believe this is not fake news. Scambodia is the very right place for this shit to happen. I just think ABA uses their power and money vs one poor dude for some fake bills from an ATM. And we all know poor dude have no chance to win no matter this real or fake.
Why did he wait 18 days though? I guess it depends on how much he took out to consider how reasonable it would be to not notice for soo long.
Did he pull out a grand? Maybe he pulls the entirety of his monthly Social Security pension at one go and sticks it in his bedside dresser.
Maybe then I could believe that it took so long to notice. Maybe

If you live here for any length of time it is a natural check you do any time you get money from an ATM or over the counter at a bank. Certainly you do in a bar for all notes
Sure, mostly. But don't you ever get lulled into a sense of complacency? I know I do.
I can't remember the last time I stopped at the ATM and went through each bill feeling the texture and scanning them for defects.
When I get change from a business though I do tend to check the larger bills.
Yep. I only get a couple of hundred from ATMs and go to the bank for larger amounts. After I received a couple of old notes that nowhere would accept from a business a few years ago I got into the habit of checking. Yesterday I changed $1100 to $10 and $20
and stood at the counter and checked them all. The sign at ANZ says to check before you leave the counter so I did.

I personally withdraw atm more than 10+ times with the amount 2-3k, I wouldn't count the money or checking one by one right after the withdraw...just don't feel safe at all...
