If someone hands you a RM100 note, you might want to scrutinise it, here’s why. 

It appears that fake RM100 notes are currently recirculating in the market as a syndicate is now looking to clear their ‘stock’ by selling RM100 notes at RM10 a piece to members of the public. Be careful, guys! 

Just yesterday (15 August), a 35-year-old mixed rice vendor received a fake RM100 note from a customer who went to tapau two packets of mixed rice for RM10, as reported by Kwong Wah.

“When my employee received the money, he didn’t notice it was a fake note until I came to the shop in the afternoon to collect money. The colour started fading after the note was stained with water; that’s when I discovered it was a counterfeit,” the vendor said after meeting up with Lobak and Temiang MPs.

Since the shop was equipped with CCTV cameras, the owner looked back at the footage and discovered that the customer was a regular who visits the shop three times a week. He added that the customer himself could be a victim too because the fake note looks and feels like a real one.

It would be extremely difficult to distinguish between the fake and real notes unless the person compares both side-by-side, he added.

Temiang MP Ng Chin Tsai also urged members of the public to be aware of such counterfeit notes and not to buy any of those fake notes as it’s against the law to use counterfeit money. This matter has also been brought to the attention of Seremban district police chief for further action.

So guys, please pay attention to all the RM100 notes you come across to avoid getting scammed!
