Banco De Oro ATM dispenses fake bill?

Is it possible to get fake bills from an automated teller machine?

Fake money from BDO ATM

Based on the personal experience shared by Facebook user Anne Lachica Villasanta, the answer could be a resounding YES.

Villasanta's story related an instance where she withdrew some cash from a Banco De Oro (BDO) ATM in Tanauan, intended for her groceries. She was surprised when the teller at Citimart told her that her 1-thousand bill is a fake.

Villasanta was dumbfounded, so she asked the teller to check on her two other 1-thousand bills. They were not fake contrary to the other one that was detected earlier.

This was Villasanta's first encounter with a fake money dispensed from an ATM. She could not seem to believe what happened.

It happened on April 11, 2015.

Read her story below:
Last April 11, 2015 at around 6:07pm nagwithdraw ako ng pera sa BDO Tanauan Branch (katapat ng Metrobank) kasama ko yung husband ko... After withdrawing the money, I kept it and hindi ko muna sya ginastos not until nagsunday na (April 12). Naggrocery ako sa Citimart and nung magbabayad na ako, sabi ng cashier "Mam, fake po ang One Thousand nyo". To my dismay I told her "Paano yun mangyayari? Kawiwithdraw ko lang nyan kahapon?" Wala akong ibang pinagkagastusan. In fact, Three Thousand yung on-hand ko that time. I told the cashier na pakicheck na maigi yung pera. Ipinacheck ko rin sa kanya yung Two Thousand Pesos ko sa wallet and ipinakita nya saken yung money habang iniscan sa scanner para maverify kung fake o hindi. Yung una kong iniabot, FAKE daw pero yung remaining TWO THOUSAND, HINDI FAKE.
And nakita ko ang pagkakaiba. Iba yung color nung hidden symbol sa fake na pera compared dun sa hindi fake. Pati yung images nya mejo malabo. Tapos yung drawing ng tao nya iba dun sa hindi fake. Pero kung titingnan mo hindi masyadong obvious yung palatandaan.
Sabi nung kasunod ko sa line, may mga nangyayari talagang ganun. ATM pero may fake na nilalabas na pera. Umuwi ako kahapon agad and my mom advised me na bumalik sa bangko at least para ireport sa guard na may ganung case na nangyari. As usual, sasabihin ng guard ng imposibleng mangyari yun. But then I told him "Kuya paano magiging imposible e FAKE itong hawak kong pera. Isa pa, if you want to verify, you can check your CCTV Camera para malaman mo nagwithraw ako dito kagabi. At ni hindi ko pa nagalaw yung pera ko not until gagamitin ko dapat pambayad kanina sa Citimart". I told him babalik ako ngayon (April 13) para magcomplain.
Honestly, first time kong mabiktima ng FAKE MONEY. At hindi ito nakakatuwa. Yung tipong sa ATM ka na nga nagwithdraw, ni wala kang kaalam alam na may mangyayaring ganito. Imagine, FAKE yung ilalabas na pera na sana inaasahan mong magagamit mo sa kapakipakinabang na bagay.
Sana magawan nila ito ng solusyon. Dahil what if hindi lang pala ako ang nakaexperience nito? What if kayo mismo mabiktima rin? Haaaay Sana hindi na ito maulit sa kahit kanino... Dahil pag hindi mo alam ang gagawin sa ganitong sitwasyon, wala na... Masasayang ang pinaghirapan
Sometime in September last year, we featured similar incident:

Did you experience the same? If you were to discover that your bills taken from an ATM are fake, what will you do?

Beware and spread this story so that others maybe alerted.
