1. In many stores and supermarkets sellers check the authenticity of banknotes. This procedure is mandatory and is very widespread. Counterfeit banknotes are detected frequently, and their presence is no longer a big surprise. A buyer will be simply asked to pay with another banknote.
2. In order to avoid any possible trouble and to protect yourself from counterfeiters, it is recommended to exchange money in banks and specialized exchange offices only. Do not exchange banknotes of a big denomination in markets and small shops that usually do not check the authenticity of money.

In order to become a regular customer in a particular restaurant, you just need to visit it a couple of times. Regular customers are usually treated with welcome drinks, and before leaving a waiter can make one more surprise – bring a signature dessert of the restaurant.
