Forged note

Beware of a scam which was used on me. I went to an official Change window...I wanted to change £150 so took the notes from my purse. The assistant then passed one £20 back which was torn almost in half, I apologised and gave her another, taking back the damaged note. As we walked away I pondered how I had not noticed giving her a torn note and realised that I only ever get notes from an ATM so could not have had the torn one. Sure enough on close inspection it was a forgery, which she had very easily got rid of. Make sure you count out your crisp notes carefully.

This is good to know. Can you tell me what city this was in.

As I posted this in the Marrakech forum I guess the city was Marrakech.
