How it works:
- When you pay, the cashier drops the cash received and then switch it with a smaller value note while picking them up.
- They then claim that you have underpaid and will ask you to top up the remainder.
Places to beware:
- Anywhere (e.g. shops, bars, restaurants, taxis)
What to do:
- Get familiar with the South Africa rand, count the notes out loud when handing them over and watch how the notes are handled.
