Duped again! A bus company in Chongqing has counted and compiled 56 million yuan of worthless fake bills and coins they have collected in the past year. People just won’t stop using counterfeit bills to pay for bus fares!
Maybe for some it’s an honest mistake. When the money is the same color, size, and feel of true currency it’s hard to tell. But those who used a fake 100 yuan bill (who pays 100 yuan to take a 1 yuan bus?) or a bill with what looks like a coat-tailed man carrying a pink, anthropomorphic cat-thing? Doubtful. And the people who try to pass off a fake American, hundred dollar bill? Come on. Inexcusable.
