This came after a a woman online claimed that a 2 million note pile of money was fake 1000 baht bills that had surfaced in Ban Mae Thalop of Chai Prakarn district, Chiang Mai. This is in the area known as the Golden Triangle loop.

 

The poster asked people to share the news saying the fakes were not very good - they didn't have a picture of Rama 10 on the left as they should.
