Police warn of counterfeit money

Community Featured Online First

Westville Police are warning the public of counterfeit Canadian dollar bills that are showing up.

One was found on Spring Garden Road this summer and one recently showed up in circulation within the past two weeks. The bill is printed on plain photocopier paper and has no hologram on the bill. A solid grey blotch replaces the hologram. Also there is Chinese writing on the bill.

The bill is not a replica of the original bill, but can easily be mistaken when there is legitimate currency with it. The colours are correct.

Police warn local residents to keep this in mind as over the holiday season a lot of currency will exchange hands.
