Be careful of another twist of fake money scam around Metro Manila.
This time, the culprits are store owners or cashiers.
This is how these lowlifes do it. When you hand over your money to pay for the goods you intend to buy to the cashier, the cashier will switch your money with a fake money and will declare to you like “Sir, your money is fake!.” In tagalog, “Sir, fake ang pera nyo.” Much to your embarrassment.
How to avoid this scam. When you pay, take a good look at your money even when the money is in the cashier’s hand.
In case you forgot to do above. Tell the police that you’ve been duped. Ask around other people about the store’s modus operandi.
