FAKE $50 NOTES BEING CIRCULATED
COUNTERFEIT $50 notes are being distributed across the metropolitan area again. The notes' clear windows are the hardest to counterfeit, and we have found on the latest fakes that the panels rub off. The counterfeiters have been targeting Perth nightclubs, but also shops and businesses as far away as Ellenbrook. They will strike when you are most busy and not paying attention to the quality of the cash you are being given. Check all large bills that come your way and go to www.banknotes.rba.gov.au. It could save your money. – Sergeant Warren Ameduri
