However, what to do if you receive a fake note in the ATM?
Things to keep in mind
When you do a transaction at an ATM, always keep in mind before returning from the ATM to count and check the notes properly.
If you have doubt on the credibility of any note then show that note into the ATM room’s CCTV camera so that if the bank denies to accept that the transaction was done from their ATM, you can ask them to check the footage.
Always keep in mind to take the transaction receipt from the ATM. Or, if you have done paperless transaction, save the message you receieve from the bank after the transaction.
Once you receive the fake note from the ATM, contact the bank immediately and show them the transaction slip and exchange it from them.
Though this process will take time, but it’s better to take the original currency rather then circulating the fake note which is a punishable crime under the law.
According to law, if you circulate fake currency in the market, you can be punished with imprisonment.
