Dear Residents and Retail Staff,

We are advising member of the publics on how to detect counterfeit money following reports of counterfeit notes being passed to Retail staff. Please follow the below advice:

• Educate staff on anti-counterfeit features designed into bank notes (see Fake bank note detection attachment).
• Inform local watch schemes and neighbouring businesses of any counterfeit money transactions.
• Preserve any CCTV evidence.
• Ensure staff are aware what to do if they suspect a fake bank note or coin. This process should be written into your policies and procedures.

Please also be aware that Passing Counterfeit Money is a criminal offence and anyone suspected of any involvement in this offence will be prosecuted.

Thank You.
