17 September 2021A Nigerian actress, Ejine Okoroafor, has revealed that she narrowly escaped being sent to jail in Paris over some fake Euro notes that were sold to her by a ‘reputable’ Nigerian bank.The actress took to her verifiedInstagrampage to share her ordeal, stating that on that fateful day, she was ‘ashamed to be a Nigerian’.
She wrote, “Thursday, the 16th of September, I was ashamed of being a Nigerian. At a mall here in Paris, I went to purchase some items and I was told the Euro notes I had were fake. I bought the money from a well-known bank in Nigeria (PTA).”Okoroafor further stated that she took the money to a bank in Paris and the cash machine seized the money and provided her with a receipt that the money was fake.
“I took it to a bank and a cash machine seized the €2,000 that was rightfully placed and rejected the last squeezed €500 with a receipt that the money is fake (because I was advised to pay the money into an account and withdraw in smaller denominations that they hardly spend (€500),” she added.

So, we took the surviving €500 to MoneyGram to confirm its authenticity and we almost got into trouble; they wanted to call the Police on us.
“We eventually had to visit the Police station for her to report the incident to avoid her account from getting blocked or being negatively affected by this situation.”Okoroafor claims that she later called the bank to explain what happened, but she did not get a favourable response.
“Meanwhile, I called the bank manager when the ATM seized the money, to let him know what had happened. He said I should have called him when they told me at the mall; I should not have gone to the bank. I should return the money.“Apparently, he said they had been told to stop issuing that cash and I was never alerted. The alert would have helped me to be cautious.Read more: The Punch Newspapers »

🤨🤨🤨 It may not necessarily be true, even though its very possible. Why do I say so, even here in the UK people at malls, even banks will look at you suspiciously if you present £50 note. Its simple because it's not that widely circulated. If you're not careful they'll claim it's fake Corruption has destroyed this nation
No be lie oo , ATM has given me fake currency before Next time you want to collect foreign notes, tell them to note down the serial numbers, make them do a copy for you too, of course signed & stamped. You can't be too careful in Nigeria! It's a lie.... Just mention the bank name, simple.. Somebody need to held responsible
Sue them if you're with any proof Imagine a stupid contraption called a country..... Nigeria is a waste Lol 😂
