The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

CAMPBELLTON, N.B. — RCMP in north­ern New Brunswick are warn­ing busi­nesses to be on the look­out for coun­ter­feit bills iden­ti­fi­able by the Chi­nese char­ac­ters marked on them. Po­lice say the $20 and $100 Cana­dian bills are be­ing passed in the Campbellton area.

The Moun­ties are ad­vis­ing busi­nesses to care­fully check bills dur­ing trans­ac­tions with cus­tomers and to re­port any sus­pi­cious-look­ing money to their lo­cal RCMP de­tach­ment.

The public was warned about sim­i­lar bills be­ing passed in the Hal­i­fax area in April.

At the time, po­lice said a 15-year-old boy was ar­rested af­ter a fake $50 bill cov­ered in Chi­nese char­ac­ters was used to ob­tain change from a con­ve­nience store clerk in Lower Sackville.
