How to prevent receiving counterfeit money or fake slips.

      It is a problem that stores or even users like us sometimes unknowingly receive counterfeit money or banknotes. To prevent these problems, let’s look at how to prevent them.

In this article, we would like to separate the spending into 2 types for us to easily understand.

1. making purchases with cash or banknotes

        It’s a very risky way to get counterfeit money or banknotes without even realizing it. because we cannot verify every receipt and payment. So, is there some method to prevent it? Let’s see.

1.1 Always observe by sight and detector before receiving banknotes, especially high-priced banknotes.

  • Banknotes Detector with UV Light
    It is a feature on the banknote surface with high-brightness UV light such as paper texture, paper quality, line, reflection, etc., which can detect multiple banknotes at the same time with high accuracy.
  • Magnetic detector (MG).

    used to detect magnets in banknotes. Because if it is a counterfeit banknote, there will be no magnet mixed in. This magnetic banknote detector is considered to be very accurate. It is also possible to detect quickly with a large magnetic sensor that can detect all currencies.

  • Watermark detector (WM)

1.2 Do not reuse the counterfeit banknotes that have already been received because there is an offense under the law.

1.3 Write the word "fake" on the banknote to distinguish it from the real banknote or hand it over to the commercial bank for submission into the system.

1.4 If a counterfeit banknote is brought to you, you should ask for details such as how they got it, from whom, where, etc., including remembering the characteristics and other things about the user as much as possible to make a report.

1.5 Call the local police or the Bank of Thailand at Tel. 0 2356 7987 to report the incident.

2. Electronic spending or e-payment

      We will encounter very little counterfeiting, but there is still a way for thieves to do some counterfeiting. For example, fake transfer slips because the storefront can’t check the spending in real-time from bank transfers or Prompt Pay, etc. Therefore, let’s see how to reduce this vulnerability.

2.1 Examine the slip's details.

      Because the letters and numbers of the amount of money transferred, date, time, and name of the recipient and sender will be forged the most at this point.

2.2 Scan QR CODE

        A money transfer slip is in the form of an e-Slip or a money transfer slip of a bank application. There will be a QR Code to check the slip whether the transaction is done or not.

2.3 Use a merchant management system that has a function to automatically check money transfers.

          If an online store has a large number of orders and a lot of money transfers, they can choose a store management system that has an automatic check balance system to help merchants save time and reduce the process.

2.4 Use a payment system that allows you to check the payment immediately.

          For example, e-Wallet. Many of you have used the Pao Tang application. We can see that the e-Wallet application can instantly check the payment and notify each transaction promptly.

2.5 Do not post photos of slips on the internet.

            Do not post photos of slips on the internet to prevent scammers from editing them and using them to deceive other online sellers.

      However, accepting payments with e-Payment or e-Wallet will greatly help us or merchants to get rid of counterfeit banknotes and counterfeit slips. because they can immediately check whether the transaction has been made or not.
