Mumbai-based actress Megha Chakraborty on Sunday was duped with a fake Rs 100 note. Now, the amount might not seem enough to make the news, and neither is the authenticity of the note to naked eyes. It is the fact that the RS 100 note was issued by one “Children Bank of India”. To be more accurate, the Rs 100 “coupon” was issued by the Children Bank of India. Megha Chakraborty, once aware of the fact that she had been cheated, posted the picture of the fake currency on Facebook, from where it went viral.
The post has gone on to receive over 10,000 likes and 16,16 shares as of now. According to the picture of the currency posted by the actress, the esteemed governor of the Children Bank of India is Santa Claus. Christmas has indeed arrived early in Mumbai. The governer’s oath on the note reads, “I promise to play with the coupon hundred.” Although, if it has to be seen from a logical point of view, the note does not give one the vibe that it comes out of the “fake currency mafia”.
The note claims to be a Rs 100 coupon, guaranteed by the Children Bank of India. It does not claim to be a real currency either. It resembles as one of the fake notes that Children use to play with. Now, this might just have been a practical joke or some auto driver saw an opportunity and had the audacity to play a bluff. So one very possible reason as to why Megha got cheated was because she wasn’t paying attention.
