Police in the resort town of Nha Trang have arrested a Malaysian man for allegedly exchanging fake ringgit notes into Vietnamese dong.
Wong Giao Lian, 29, reportedly exchanged ten MYR100 bills for VND5 million (US$223) at a shop on Biet Thu Street in the town on Saturday.
After Wong left, the shop owner noticed that the bills were counterfeit and called the police.
Wong was detained soon after. When searching his room at a hotel in Nha Trang, police found 679 more 100-ringgit notes. Wong admitted to the police that all of them were fake.
