A video is making the rounds on social media where a Nigeria lady cries out after a fake N1000 redesigned note she got from a POS vendor almost landed in trouble in Lagos Island.
In the trending the video, the lady while raising alarm says that as she enters Lagos, she decided to make use of the POS, then she saw a POS vendor, a lady at the market then she withdrew N50,000 from her.
Upon getting to the place where she wants to buy food stuff at the market, the market woman while counting the money she gave her put the N1000 new notes on one side and told her that it’s fake.
Responding, the lady wasn’t having it, until it turns into heated argument between her and the market woman who started raining insult on her.
Speaking further, the lady said the market woman confirms to her that it’s fake by rubbing one of her fingers on the gold part designed on the N1000 naira note and its started shielding as it won’t be happening on a original N1000 note.
Recall that few days after the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, released the redesigned naira notes in the denominations of N200, N500 and N1,000, fake copies of the new N1000 naira notes have been released into the economy and the circulations have being quite huge in numbers.
The lady further urged Nigerians to always check the gold part of new N1000 note by rubbing their hands on it so as to know if it’s fake or not so that they can easily return it to the POS vendor.
She admitted that it’s God that save her yesterday at the Lagos Island market due to her ignorance
about the fake note. She further committed the lady working at the POS to the hand of God for making her land into trouble with the fake 1k note giving to her. Watch the video below;
