Bust was byproduct of paying with $100 note

Who pays a motodop with a $100 bill? Counterfeiters. Two Vietnamese men and a woman were arrested on Friday for using fake currency in Kampong Chhnang town.

The group took a motodop from a bus stop to a hotel, paying the driver $100 for the $15 ride. When the motodop went for change at a nearby market, he found it was a fake, and reported it to police.

The three, aged between 17 and 28, were arrested at the hotel where police discovered motorbike keys, credit cards, and Cambodian IDs. Koh Santepheap
