    The police station in Songkhla province was notified by an employee at the Seven-11 store in Hadyai after finding one fake 1,000 baht which was used to buy goods. Upon investigation the employee of Seven-11 shop said that a fried chicken vendor had used the fake banknote to buy goods.

    In the evening a female customer age about 20 had used this fake banknote to buy goods. He said he didn’t know at that time that the banknote was fake.

    Later when he used the fake banknote to buy goods in 7-Eleven shop, the employee told him that the banknote was fake. The police kept the fake banknote as evidence.

    Also in the northern Thailand, in Nan there now many fake 100 THB banknotes circulating.

    This is really disturbing! I think the main target of the syndicates are tourists who couldn't determine whether the money is fake or not.
    I just wish this won't become a bigger problem in Thailand.

    Fake bank notes should be confiscated by the government right away. They should also impose a higher fine for the people caught manufacturing fake bank notes.

    Thanks for the warning! I'll be making sure I'll use coins instead of paper bills the next time I go to Bangkok!
