Aussie’s sneaky act in Bali gets yelled at by other tourists, “So you’re looking for trouble?”
- An Aussie found fake money to take to Bali
- They planned to use it to ‘swindle the scammers’
An Australian tourist who bought fake money for his trip to Bali has set alarm bells ringing among other holidaymakers who said his ploy to ‘swindle scammers’ could put him in danger.
The man shared a photo of the counterfeit Australian money he bought from Kmart on a Facebook group on Sunday.
“Can’t wait to find the scammers,” he captioned the photo.
Several commentators wrote that locals will often approach Aussie tourists on the street and ask to see the Australian currency before making off with the cash.

“You’ll have so much fun,” said one commenter.
“Great idea,” wrote another.
‘Let us know what happens! So funny,” said another.
However, several others feared that the man’s seemingly tricky tactics could put him in danger.
“So you’re looking for trouble?” one person wrote.
“I’m not sure that’s going as well as it sounds,” said another.
“Aren’t you scamming if you try to use it as currency?” asked a third.
Another warned, “I bet you’ll be ready if you try to pass counterfeit money.”
Several people warned the man about using fake money in Bali (above), not even scammers, with one mother writing how a local resident yelled at her children
A mother said she had already had a run-in with a local woman after her children tried to play a prank with fake money.
“My kids sat in a cafe one day and put (fake money) on the floor,” she wrote.
An elderly lady picked one up and realized it was a fake.
“She saw them giggle and tried to yell at them for making fun of her!
“We laughed her off the table, along with the fake money she was trying to pocket.”
