The quantity of counterfeit bills was so rampant that it lead the new administration to change the appearance of the Philippine peso bills. According to those who developed the new Philippine peso bills, the new bills could not be forge because it has a lot of security features. So how was it that we were able to receive a fake one? The old bills took a long time to be copied so how was it that the new bills could be copied in less than a year?

Simple answer to your question... Technology nowadays is better than that of yesterday. That's the main reason why new bills was copied in less that a year.

huwatt!? the new bills have counterfeits already? boy, they're fast. Thank you for posting this or else I wouldn't have any idea why they made new bills. At first I thought it was just P’noy’s pride, so that people will have something to say that he did during his administration. I didn't actually think that it was because counterfeits are becoming rampant ...

haha.. how sad to find out the truth that there are people who are more talented who can easily counterfeit our new peso bill. I think our government should do their best to fix this and come up a better solution before its too late. or else the fake peso bills will keep on circulating in our country with out our knowledge that the money we are holding is not the genuine one. because not all of us had seen the new peso bills.

I think having many security features in money does indeed make it difficult to copy but knowing if what you have is genuine or counterfeit is an entirely different thing not unless you are familiar with the security features to be able to differentiate, so it's still your responsibility and obligation to study, know and learn,learn, and learn what they are, otherwise all the security features would just be useless decorations on the bill

At first I can't understand what's your point, and somehow it make me laugh. Sorry about that. So how did you know its a fake bill from a real one? Duh!?!. . . . Well of course there will be always somebody who can forged our Peso Bills but still you can figure out which one is real and which one is a fake or counterfeit. Our Peso Bill will have a new look once in a while even there's a rampant or no rampant of counterfeiting bills. It is like wearing a new clothes once in a while with or without special occasions.
