Swiss charged over fake $100 note

Recommended Posts

Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday charged a Swiss tourist with trying to dupe an ABA Bank branch manager into replacing a counterfeit $100 note which he claimed had been dispensed by the bank’s ATM machine in Daun Penh district. A court document identified the accused as Peter Hofer, 64, staying at the Velkommen Guesthouse in the district’s Phsar Kandal 1 commune. He was charged with fraud and faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

 

Mr Hofer was arrested on Saturday and is now in prison pending trial.

Second Lieutenant Sok Vuth, a district penal police officer, said that at about 9.30pm on Saturday, the accused withdrew $100 from the bank’s ATM machine in the commune.

 

He said that after withdrawing the note he put it in his bag. Sec Lt Vuth said that Mr Hofer then took out a fake $100 note from his bag and showed it to other customers waiting outside the ATM booth, saying that the machine had dispensed it.

dont they openly sell fake money in Cambodia? Ive been given it as change before. Its a hassle always having to always check money. after reading the article its seems he was guilty. Its a bit of a worry tho that the bank thought it was possible their machine gave out a fake note
