A Phuket taxi driver posted a warning to others on social media after a tourist managed to get away with giving him a 50 baht bank note.
That appears to have been washed in purple die and had an extra zero actually glued in place to make it appear like a 500 baht note.
The driver who wished to remain anonymous possibly through fear of being ridiculed for accepting the fake note posted photos of the note on Facebook yesterday.
He said he is not sure if the tourist created the note alone or is part of a larger operation or perhaps they themselves had been given the note not noticing the forgery.
The post went on to say that he wanted to make other drivers aware especially those working at night where it is not as easy to check notes due to low light levels.
