I think after going to the bank he visited a 10,000 riel massage joint. When he arrived home he discovered 2000 dollrs in fake notes. It must have cleaned the massage parlour of their entire stock of fake notes. :lol:

Whether true or not, that is the third report of fake $100 bills posted here this month that accuses Phnom Penh ABA bank ATMs.
Are these reports all down to scams, drama queens on social media, light-fingered ladies of the night, or is it the ATMs ?
If anyone spots other reports like this, please post.

His report doesn’t involve an ATM. You can’t get $4000 from an ATM.

Except this isn't the ATM giving him phonies, it's the clerk.

There should be video footage of the counter, each clerk has a camera in the banks I've been in.

I don't think a bank's surveillance footage is good enough to show the serial numbers on bills handed out. I could be wrong.

Maybe not ABA, but I can get $4k out of ANZR in one pop.
