If you’ve lived in or even visited China, you’ve most likely been a victim to fake money. Be sure to never let other people handle your money or leave sight of you with it in their hands – this often means that they are switching your real 100RMB note with a fake one. It seems that no denomination of currency is too big or small to fall victim to counterfeit, so it’s important to check all your bills. This may take some time at first, but once you practice for a while, you’ll be able to spot a fake RMB note almost immediately.

So, how to tell if you’ve been handed a fake? There are several methods of checking. One of the easiest ways to tell real currency from fake is by rubbing a finger against the collar on Chairman Mao’s picture. His collar will have a raised, slightly rougher texture compared to the rest of the bill. If the entire bill is completely smooth, you have a fake. Hold the bill up to the light. On the left side, Chairman Mao’s face should be perfectly clear, not blurry or smudged. Same goes for the red and blue symbol inside the red circle located below the serial number. If the blue and red symbols aren’t even or there is a white gap between their borders, it is fake. The denomination number found next to these symbols should appear green when looking straight at it, but should look brown when you tilt the bill upwards and look at it from the bottom. If the number does not change color, you know you have a fake. Lastly, on the top right corner, there is a circular design just below the denomination number. Tilt it upwards so that you are looking at it from the bottom. You should see a faint, slightly raised replica of the denomination number (http://www.suite101.com). As you can see, there are many ways to tell whether your RMB notes are real or fake. I would recommend trying them all, then picking the one or two you find easiest to notice and keeping an eye out for those.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
