Uttar Pradesh: Fake Rs 500 Notes are coming out from an ATM
The residents of Bareilly district in Uttar Pradesh were in for a rude shock when the ATM machine of United Bank of India installed at Subhashnagar started dispensing fake Rs 500 notes, with ‘Children Bank of India’, ‘Bhartiya Manoranjan Bank’ and ‘Churan Lable’ written over it.
Interestingly, the Rs 500 notes were similar to the original Rs 500 notes which are issued by the RBI. The fake notes were dispensed not to one but three people who came to withdraw money from the ATM.
The unguarded ATM of United Bank of India at Subhashnagar dispensed counterfeit currency first on Sunday evening to Ashok Kumar Pathak, a retired employee with health department and a resident of Ishwari Bhawan where the latter found ‘Children Bank of India’ written over them. Previously, a resident of Rajeev Colony, Pravin Uttam also got two fake notes of Rs 500 denomination
The affected people called up the toll-free number of the bank to inform them about the issue. Investigation is going on.
