Fake 1000 Thai Baht Notes Circulating in Thailand

AbsolutelyBangkok.com had a useful post today that popped up in my feed reader. Apparently 19,000 fake 1,000 baht notes have been found so far in a recent wave of counterfeit.

Here’s the problem…

The user of such banknotes will be subject to a maximum of 15 years behind bars and a maximum fine of 30,000 baht.

So, it pays to know what they look like and start having a look at your cash.

Below gives an indication of where to look. Click on the image to go to the original site and see the large images.
