Police warn of fake RM100 notes in circulation in Miri
MIRI: The police Thursday warned of the circulation of fake new RM100 notes in the city following three reports made on the matter, including one by a bank.
Miri police chief ACP Mun Kock Keong said the two other reports were made by individuals who also found the notes to be fake due to the poor paper quality and lack of security features.
"Based on our initial investigation, all the three fake notes have the same serial number, AA7825588," he said.
Mun warned members of the public to be extra cautious when receiving new RM100 notes.
"They can check the quality of the paper by touching it because the new notes will not wrinkle easily compared to poor quality paper.
“If unsure, please refer to the nearest Bank Negara office," he said. - Bernama
