I've never heard of anyone getting fake notes as change in Zhuhai. Typically the fakes are 100 RMB which you can't get as change. I have heard of taxi drivers doing a switch and then accusing the passenger of passing the fake note, but not in Zhuhai.

You only need worry about fake 100rmb and as it is the biggest denomination, you cannot get this in change. Any ways fake bills re quite rare.

I have gotten a fake 50rmb note before, so it's not just the 100rmb fakes that are out there!

But it's unlikely to happen.

> you cannot get this(100 RMB) in change.

You tender a 100RMB bill to a taxi driver. He gives it back and says it's no good and asks for another one (euphemism for refusing fake bills). You are puzzled since you got the bill from the ATM. So you give him another one. He refuses again. This goes on for a while. Eventually you are down to the last one which he reluctantly accepts.

End Result: All your 100RBM bills have been switched.
