Fake 100 baht bills found in Lampang

 

LAMPANG, 14 April 2017 (NNT) - Vendors and people in Lampang province have been told to look out for fake 100-baht bills after the counterfeit money was found at Kao Chao Market. 

More than 200 vendors at the market have been told by a market public relations officer, Paiboon Aodkeng, to examine 100-baht banknotes every time they receive one. 

The counterfeit notes have the following serial number 0E 4647409 printed on one side. Anchalee Luangbutr, a florist, said she did not realize she had received a fake bill until she noticed the same serial number on another 100-baht bill. By then, the customer who gave it to her had already gone. 

Achalee also described that the fake bill was thinner than usual and the watermarks were unclear. 

Lampang provincial police are now identifying the suspect(s) captured by surveillance cameras.
