Fake $100 bills from ATM. Urban myth or reality.

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.

Always threatening and bullying people in every response from the bank is very unprofessional.
They very well know the state of these law enforcement agencies they want to work with.
Very unusual behaviour for a bank.
I wonder why it is mostly ABA who is in the news with these issues, rarely hear about other banks.
They should explain why it's impossible that there is fake money in their ATMs instead of threatening people, that would reassure the faith in this bank.
In this thread alone Phillip, Acleda,ANZ, and Canadia have been mentioned with regard to dispensing these "copy" notes. So it is not solely an ABA problem. :hattip:

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
Jeremie Reb is the founder and executive director of a firm called Archomatik, so doubt he was drawing his Social Security pension.

Just this morning I withdrew money from canadia atm at sorya centrepoint. Received 3 false $100 bills with “COPY” on the bottom.
The banks hotline was less than helpful and they didn’t seem too concerned about checking the machine.
Found this discussion when I did a google search - definitely not an urban myth!

Always Always and of course Always....

Check the notes under the cameras at the ATM.

Don't care about the massive queue behind you.

Don't care about anything other than the notes being real and on record.

The machines (except machines at Bank branches) are filled by Security Cash-In-Transit companies.

Cambodian security is not world-class. There are many holes and people are quick to spot a weakness in the system.

Once again - Check the notes FIRST and under the camera.

It's worth a few seconds of your time to check and count the notes unless you earn zillions per hour and perhaps your time is valuable with a hot hooker waiting
