Fake money turns up in Langley

 

The Mounties have issued a warning about fake American bank notes being spread around the Lower Mainland, including in Willowbrook, and in the Okanagan.

There has been an increase in the recent distribution of $20 and $50 bills, from the 2004 series. The bills are being circulated to a variety of businesses.

The police are warning people, especially clerks and small business owners, to watch for the security features on bills to catch the fakes.

“Checking the security features of bank notes is the public’s best line of defence against counterfeiting,” said Sgt. Dave Selvage of the BC RCMP FSOC Integrated Counterfeit Enforcement Team.

Anyone with information on the distribution of manufacturing of fake currency can call the local RCMP at 604-532-3200, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
