What Do You Do If You Receive a Counterfeit Banknote?

After you able to detect any counterfeit and fake banknote, you must be wondering; what should I do now?

Some advices, do notify the police immediately if you have received counterfeit banknotes. Using or returning counterfeit banknotes is just as illegal as manufacturing it. Counterfeit banknotes are not eligible for replacement!

Follow these steps (as provided by Central Bank of Malaysia or BNM):
  • Delay the person (passer) who gives you the counterfeit banknotes if possible and observe the passer's description, as well as that of his/her companion if any, and the license numbers of any vehicles used by them
  • Do not write on, cut or re-circulate the counterfeit currency
  • Handle the currency as little as possible (e.g. you can put it in an envelope or plastic cover). Record on a separate sheet of paper all the details about how you got the currency, who gave it to you, where and when you got it
  • Take the counterfeit currency to the nearest police station and surrender the counterfeit currency to them after lodging a police report
