Fake American $50’s in circulation
Business merchants and individuals are being asked to keep their eyes open for counterfeit American $50 bills which have been found in circulation in the Brome-Missisquoi MRC. As is typical with counterfeit money, the suspects use the fake bills to pay for small purchases. After the transaction, the suspects sometimes ask the cashier to exchange other American bills, also fake. These types of situations have occurred in the areas of Farnham and Cowansville and have been reported to the police. Anyone who witnesses any transactions like this are asked to call the Sureté du Quebec at 819 310-4141.
