Nigerian actress, Ejine Okoroafor, got herself into trouble in Paris after receiving fake Euros from a Nigerian bank.

Nollywood actress, Ejine Okoroafor, has expressed her dissatisfaction with how she almost got herself into problems in Paris after receiving fake Euro money from an undisclosed Nigerian bank.

According to the actress, she went to a mall and bought some things. She was informed that the notes were counterfeit, so she decided to take them to a nearby bank, where they were also refused owing to their falsification.

The actress recounted her ordeal, including her last trip to MoneyGram, where she was almost jailed for handling counterfeit money.

Embarrassed about the whole issue, she urged those willing to visit to avoid big denominations or collect money via the PTA system.

She wrote:

Thursday, the 16th of September, I was ashamed 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).
I took it to bank, A cash machine seized the €2000 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 500euro)I asked my friend, who lives here to help me with the transaction. So We took d surviving €500 to MoneyGram to confirm its authenticity and we almost got into trouble,dey wanted to call the Police on us. We eventually had to visit the Police station for her to report,to avoid her account from getting blocked or being negatively affected by this situation.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 won’t 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.
Dear Nigerians, avoid the big denominations for now, if you need to collect via PTA system to travel.
It is a real big shame.
Thank You.
