Found this 10$ note, spring 2006 in Quebec city.
Beside a real note, it looks quite obvious...

It's not a fake. It's a new and unique replacement note with prefix AAX.  ;D

In case Phil's sarcasm was not totally clear, the note is indeed fake. I have seen one with the same prefix.

Of course it is fake.

-AAX prefix (tiny letters, black ink went through the paper)
-this bill is 2-3mm longer and 1mm larger than a real one
-They screw up big time with the blue ribbon on the back, down-left corner ("lest we forget").

I've seen a good one as well.  It is JUI76543219.  This prefix was never issued and there are 1 to many digits (5 minutes of research by the creator of this one and it would have been almost passable) ;D.  It is almost a ladder note to boot!   ;)

My friend received one, too. He probably obtained it from a dollar store or a small produce shop. I remember seeing another fake bill similar to this one posted on a cash register at a dollar store with the word fake written across it....

I have the pics of the observe and reverse here (I didn't have a 2001 issue $10 dollar bill so I had to compare it with a $5):

I checked with the bank on Friday and the teller said it was not a fake. She did not use a currency counter though so it might of not been noticeable to the naked eye.

I'll double check and tell them to use a currency counter.

EDIT

The note was NOT a fake according to that Bank of Canada pamphlet (finally came!) that I found in the mail a few minutes ago. :)
