Bangladesh Bank on Tuesday urged the social media users to refrain from using pictures of any unauthorised note in Facebook or other social media.

The central bank also urged the law enforcement agencies to take necessary measures against the use of such notes in Facebook or other social media.

‘Picture of a note, worth Tk 100, is available on Facebook. The photo of prime minister Sheikh Hasina is on the left side of the note and the photo of Bangabandhu Satellite is on the back,’ said the BB through a press release.

The note has been spread through several Facebook IDs that have been shared by many people.

The BB informed that the central bank had taken no initiative to print such notes. So, the note on Facebook is completely fake, the release said.
