Last month, Penang police busted a fake money syndicate believed to be distributing the fake notes in Penang and neighbouring states, arresting four people, including a husband and wife during raids on two premises in Machang Bubok, Bukit Mertajam. Police raided a house in Jalan Kulim and Taman Bidara, Machang Bubok between 9am last Friday and 1am the next day following a two-week surveillance.

State police chief Datuk Ayub Yaakub said the two houses were used to print fake currency notes, where police found 432 pieces fake notes for the value of USD40,900, 825,000 Rupiah and seven Singapore dollars during the raids. Counterfeit money was confiscated 409 pieces of USD100, Rupiah (Rp) 5,000 (two), Rp1, 000 (five), Rp10, 000 (a), Rp50, 000 (10), Rp100, 000 (three) and each piece S2 and S5. Ayub said the syndicate was believed to have been operating for one year and the fake notes were used at the night markets and petrol stations, among the places.
He said police also arrested three local men and an Indonesian woman, all aged between 35 and 45. Among the items seized by police were laptop computers, printers, scanner, hand phones, and other computer gadgets as well as devices for printing fake money. He said the suspects were being investigated under Section 489(d) of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of up to 20 years and a fine upon conviction.
In Berita harian report, I read that they were using A4 paper as the banknote paper. I cannot see that in the picture but I guess, the report is not true. US Dollar paper is made from a different material from the normal A4 paper, the feel of touching it will be totally different. Not many people in this country were using US Dollar and most of them will surely knew if that notes is genuine or not. Anyway, great job by the police.
