COUN­TER­FEIT­ERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

COUN­TER­FEIT $50 notes are be­ing dis­trib­uted 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 night­clubs, but also shops and busi­nesses as far away as El­len­brook. They will tar­get busi­nesses at busy times when staff may not have time to check the notes. Check all large bills that come your way and go to www.ban­knotes.rba. gov.au. It could save your money. - Sergeant War­ren Ame­duri
