Though we are taught how to recognise fake Indian currencies, many times it becomes difficult to identify such notes due to their uncanny resemblance to the original ones. A Kolkata-based television actress was fooled by an auto-driver recently after she was given a fake note.
Megha Chakraborty is said to have received the fake note from an auto-driver at 1 am due to which she couldn't recognise it as forged currency. She has shared it with the caption: "Last night at 1 am I got fooled by a autowala in Mumbai sala kamina.... 'children bank of India' SERIOUSLY [sic]."
The Facebook post of Megha has gone viral on social media with more than 11,000 likes and over 1,700 shares on Facebook.
Meanwhile, instead of Reserve Bank of India, the note, in which it is written as One Hundred Coupon, has been issued by Children Bank of India and is also guarenteed by Children Bank. Interestingly, it has also been signed by Santa Claus who states "I promise to play with the coupon Hundred."
The forgery incident has, however, forced each one of us to check the currency each time as we can be cheated anytime.
