How to identify counterfeit five dollar bills in Ecuador

Posted on August 9, 2017 • Filed under: Crime, Ecuador, Ecuador Emergency /(MACHINE TRANSLATED) The Central Bank of Ecuador (ECB) informs the public that it is not aware of the fact that it has been warned in social networks regarding the circulation of false dollars of five dollars allegedly identifiable by the numbers 8612 placed as the last four digits of the numbering of the series. The falsity of the ticket can only be determined by the last four numbers of the series but by a set of characteristics that the citizens must know to avoid being surprised.

Regarding the numbering of the series, it should be considered:

On the back of a banknote of any denomination (where the character is), the serial number appears on both the top left (on the Federal Reserve’s shield) and the lower right. Both numbers must be exactly the same. In some fake notes this serial number is different between the one on the right and the one on the left.
The serial number contains a total of 11 alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) in the following order: two letters, eight numbers and one letter.

The second letter of the banknote series must match the first letter of the alphanumeric code below the series, on the left side of the back. These alphanumeric codes are 12: A1, B2, C3, D4, E5, F6, G7, H8, I9, J10, K11 and L12. Example: If the serial number is M F 95849386C, the second letter – in this case F – must also appear in the code below the series, which is F6 .

In addition, the five-dollar bills issued must be checked:

Paper money is consistent, not smooth or too rough.
It has a watermark that consists of a tenuous and large image of the number 5 that is observed at the right end of the ticket. In the case of tickets issued from 2008 , there is also another watermark composed of three numbers 5 in column and that are to the left of the face of the character. They can be observed against light.
There is a security thread on the right side of the character. This is an inlaid plastic band in which the USA 5 is read several times and if the ticket is passed by ultraviolet light, this wire becomes a celestial color.
The costume of the character has high relief and is cheesy.
Note the sharpness in the micro-prints.
It has quality in colors, that is, they are bright colors. Sharpness is observed in the characters of the ticket Read Article
