RCMP warn of fake US bills
Accepting cash in US funds? Be wary, and check to make sure it’s genuine before accepting it.
Trail RCMP have recovered counterfeit US bills from several businesses and banks locally; $1, $10, $20 and $50 US bills have been passed at several businesses within the last week.
The bills are slightly smaller, have poor colouring and do not feel like real currency paper. Security features such as security thread, watermarks, and colour shifting numbers are not present on these fake bills.
Several Trail residents have been identified making purchases with the fake bills. Police are investigating.
Trail RCMP ask the public to be extra diligent when accepting US cash and to please notify the detachment at 250-364-2566 if someone tries to use counterfeit currency.
