Westville po­lice warn of fake $20 bills

The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY -

Cana­dian bills are show­ing up in the com­mu­nity and Westville po­lice are telling mem­bers of the pub­lic to be wary.

One was found on Spring Gar­den Road this sum­mer and an­other 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.

Po­lice say 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.

Par­tic­u­larly when peo­ple are ex­chang­ing a lot of money over the hol­i­day sea­son, they say it’s im­por­tant for peo­ple to be on the look­out.

This is an ex­am­ple of the coun­ter­feit money Westville Po­lice are ad­vis­ing res­i­dents to be on the look­out for.
