It’s Christmas season once again. Some people are now taking advantage of this busy “spending” season by distributing fake peso bills.
Here are the most important things to check whether a peso bill is REAL and not a fake one. This is lifted from the Central Bank of the Philippines’ website.
- Paper should be rough when fingers are run through it.
- Contours of the silhouette of the portrait, on the face of the currency, on relatively new notes can be felt when fingers are run through it.
- Serial number are composed of 1 or 2 prefix letters and 6 or 7 digits and glow under ultra-violet light.
For the complete checklist, visit bsp.gov.ph website and type “Know Your Philippine Currency” on the search box.
