We explore non-standard neutrino matter interactions, working as sub-leading effects in the standard mass oscillation framework. Both mechanisms working together, induce a magnifying fake CP violating effect in the presence of matter, which can be studied in a neutrino factory which is based on a muon storage ring. Considering the three neutrino scheme, assuming a 10 kt detector with 5 years of operation, a stored muon energy Eμ ≥ 20 GeV, 2 × 1020 muon decays per year, and a baseline L ∼ 732 km, we show that it is possible to test non-standard flavor changing neutrino interactions down to the level of (10-3 - 10-2) GF, in both vμ → ντ/̄nμ → ̄nτ and νe → ντ/̄ne → ̄nτ modes.
