Gazans paid Egyptians with play money

Gazans paid Egyptians with play money

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 28 January 2008

Maariv correspondent Amit Cohen reports in today's edition that many Gazans
exploited the lack of familiarity of Egyptians with Israeli currency and
paid for goods with play money.

"During the disengagement 100 and 200 [fake] Shekel notes were distributed
in the Gaza Strip and sold to children," explain Marwan, a Gaza resident.
"I saw with my own eyes how people exploited the heavy pressure and paid
Egyptian traders with this money. On the third day the Egyptians already
learned to check the currency." Marwan told Cohen that other Gazans paid
with counterfeit dollars.

Issa, another Gazan told Cohen that the Egyptians sold food that was beyond
its expiration date.
