Beware of fake notes with serial No. C1F9

A COUNTERFEIT 100 yuan bank note has turned up in Shanghai's Baoshan District after such bills were first spotted in Beijing and the provinces of Shandong and Zhejiang, Labor Daily reported yesterday.

The fake notes start with the serial number C1F9, the report said.

A Wuzhong Road gas station employee reported this week that he received a 100 yuan fake note.

The employee surnamed Wang told the newspaper he noticed a slight difference between the note and a real one immediately after a driver paid him for gasoline. He used a counterfeit note detector to confirm it was a fake.

"The watermark on the fake note was very vague and the serial number started with C1F9, which caught my attention," Wang told the paper.

Wang was cited as saying he had heard about counterfeit notes being used elsewhere in China, so he was not fooled by this one.

Shanghai police said they had not received any reports about "C1F9" fake notes. They suggested residents be careful.
