Clerk issues warning about fake 1,000 baht bank notes in Samut Songkhram

Sanook contacted a clerk at a fishing facility in Samut Songkhram after she went on Facebook to warn traders in the area about fake Thai bank notes. 

 

Pakjira Jaroenrat, 48, said the fake only came to light when she went to the bank. 

 

Whoever handed it over took advantage of staff being busy. 

 

The note in question appeared to be a good fake. However, under light it could be seen that the "garuda" symbol exhibited a yellowish color and not green as in real notes. 

 

She warned traders in the Mae Klong market and Don Hoi Lot areas in particular to be on the lookout.

Correct - the words 'extremely rare' are superfluous.

Therefore I do accept bank notes only, when they sport King Bhumipols face. They are genuine.

does one have to worry about being slipped a counterfeit note if exchanging money at super rich or other major exchange kiosks?  any tips for the layman how to spot these?  normally no choice about old or new king if exchanging money

yes, there always is a risk.

not from the exchange or the bank themselves, but when the cashier made a mistake or was tasked by a friend to get rid of fake notes.
