Ignorance is no defence, especially for fake bills

A 22-year-old woman’s spending spree was cut short in Phnom Penh on Tuesday, after vendors alerted police she was allegedly splashing fake cash. The woman was doing the rounds in Chamkarmon district flush with counterfeit 10,000 riel ($2.50) notes when she was stopped by a security guard.

Cops subsequently found 48 of the dodgy bills on her person. Despite her claims of ignorance, she was sent to court and police are launching an investigation into the money’s origin. NOKORWAT
