Punishment for counterfeiting is harsh. So is accepting counterfeit notes, as a man in China learned the hard way. This is why I never give my wife cash, just electronic transfers. -Editor A woman in Haikou, Hainan province, thrashed her husband black and blue after he brought home a fake banknote.
The man, 48, a grocery store owner, suffered several fractured bones.
He returned home one evening and, as usual, handed over the day's earnings to his 32-year-old wife, who spotted a fake banknote and began beating the daylights out of him.
The woman later apologized to her husband, who is still recuperating in a hospital.
