UNTV News and Rescue

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Counter Terrorism Division, with help from operatives from Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), has arrested three suspects for manufacturing counterfeit money at LRC compound, Santa Cruz, Manila.

The NBI has identified the suspects as Richard Ansus, Anthony Cuatico and Irmalynne Pablo.

The three will be charged for illegal possession and manufacture of false treasury or bank notes after being caught with 20 pieces of 1,000 peso bills and equipment for manufacturing counterfeit money.

Experts say genuine currency can be differentiated from fake ones.

A genuine bank note has slightly raised images and letters. The colors on the bank note also change when seen in different angles.

“Bukod sa makintab, nagbabago bago pa po ang kulay pag ito ay iniiba iba  ang anggulo. so the color changes from green and then slowly nagiging red, or vice versa. ang peke po… kumikintab pero pula lang,” said Deputy Director Maja Gratia Malic.

(Aside from being shiny, colors change in different angles. So the color changes from green and slowly turns to red, or vice versa. A fake bank note is shiny but the red color does not change.)

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas also warns the public to check when receiving bank notes because anyone found with counterfeit currency may be seized by authorities. -Roderick Mendoza | UNTV News & Rescue
