PostSubject: Protect Yourself in China Part Two: The old switcheroo!   Wed Oct 11, 2006 9:57 pm

Receiving counterfeit money via the old switcheroo game.
You're in a fast paced metropolitan city so of course you're bound to come across something like this....
You're in a new environment here in China...not too well adjusted to surroundings, the people, the language omg...yada yada...but here's an old trick in the book that you must be sure to safeguard yourself from....
Ok so far apart from receiving counterfeit cash via ATM machines and sly sales clerks, the worst and most popular place to recieve whether it be $10,$20,$50, $100 bills is definitely from taxi drivers Mad .
Your chances of getting anything counterfeit would be greater especially if you choose to pay with a whole $100 dollar bill...(now dont whine & sulk ... just get change b4 u take taxi).....
Incidents known to have occured from trips to and from the Airport....your meter runs up to $99...u pay with $100....the taxi driver takes it and tells u its a fake. Now u know definitely this can't be so (probably cuz you got it from the bank teller directly etc. etc.) and gives u back and expects you to pull out another bill. Now what u may not have known is that the driver pulls to the side and grabs a fake bill and gives u it. He earns an extra $100...smart cunning move huh? OK well the only way out of this apart from arguing the hell out of this which most likely will not work out is to check your $100 bill (now i dont mean to see whether it is fake or not) but before you give him....look at the last two digits on the bill. Your best bet would be if the taxi driver really pulls that iconic move you have a better thresehold to argue and get back your real bill if you know the digits of the bill u paid with.
OK that's all...it's good stuff to know...take care and peace out! Razz
