How to distinguish a fake 5000 bill from the original

Money

According to the Central Bank of Russia, every second of counterfeit banknotes is counterfeit 5000 banknotes. Counterfeit money comes most often from retail - gas stations, pharmacies, small shops. In such institutions, the authenticity of money is not properly verified. The cashier may not know how to check the 5000 bill, and his equipment does not have professional detectors that would provide a thorough check for the authenticity of the 5000 bill.

When making purchases or receiving money, there is always a risk of stumbling upon a fake. Fake banknotes cannot be exchanged for real ones. It is possible to return honestly earned money only in rare cases. Therefore, you need to be vigilant, check banknotes immediately upon receipt at an ATM, exchange in a store and other places, especially with a face value of 5,000 thousand rubles.

    Curious article. For example, I did not know that 5,000 ruble bills of different years of issue look different in ultraviolet light. And I could not understand why the font of the series and numbers on banknotes of the same denomination changes its height. Live a century - learn a century, as they say. And about the sequence of actions when a fake is detected, it is well written, forewarned means armed. Now it is clear how to behave in such an accident, to which I attribute the appearance of a fake in a purse.

    Very intelligibly everything is written about the degree of protection, about the differences between the fake and the original. It is impossible to learn all of them, but you need to know the basic ones, for example, about perforation. At the same time, I believe that it is necessary to use cashless payments more often using a plastic card, then the likelihood of getting a fake will decrease significantly.

    From the article, I understand that if I come across a fake, I should contact the police. At the same time, the procedure for reimbursement of these 5,000 rubles to me is very lengthy (determining the place of receipt, numerous conversations with the police, appealing and returning money through the court). How long does it take to get your money back in this case? Has anyone had such an experience?

I understand that if you come across a fake, you can’t sell it, otherwise you will have problems with the law. And it's not easy to get compensation for it. Therefore, it is necessary to use non-cash payments more often and carry less cash with you.

    On all banknotes, incl. for 5000 rubles, there is a microfont. If you look at the bill through a magnifying glass 4 times. zoomed in, we will see that 8 stripes on the reverse side represent the repeated inscriptions “Bank of Russia”. This is the most reliable way to determine the authenticity of a bill. All other visible signs, even metal. strip, forge.
