The Northeast District RCMP is advising businesses and the general public in the Campbellton area to be aware of counterfeit money.
Police have received reports from local merchants who have been the recipients of counterfeit $20 and $100 Canadian bills. These bills are distinct in that they have Chinese writing on them.
Residents and businesses are advised to carefully check bills during transactions and immediately report any suspicious bills to their local RCMP detachment.
The Bank of Canada website has more information on how businesses and consumers can identify and protect themselves against counterfeit Canadian and American currencies.
