I never knew the full story behind it - but some claim it was a hoax.

I have seen so much conflict while in the Philippines - amazingly 99% of it was merely online computer experiences :D

I think it is a hoax because if you look at it closely, it has almost all the same colors as the P500 bill. Photoshop or a similar program did the rest. JMHO. God Bless...
Thank you...God Bless...

It\'s photoshopped from a real P5 note





It\'s still legal tender but not widely circulated....mostly replaced by P5 coin (as is the P10 note)

There\'s even a legal P100,000 note.......a REAL collectors item
