Shown below is face and back of an altered check form made into an emergency 1000 francs note by Banque de la Guadeloupe.
The issue date is 27 January 1942. The back has a stamping from the Banque de France with date of 16 June 1942 and the word VICHY underneath.
Apparently the puppet French government supported such a note issue.
