Fake $50 notes in circulation

THEY’RE fake and they’re doing the rounds of the Coffs Coast.

An unknown number of counterfeit $50 notes are in circulation and police are warning residents and business owners to be on their guard.

“Shopkeepers and residents have attended Coffs Harbour Police Station handing in the $50 notes suspected of being counterfeit,” said Coffs/Clarence crime manager, Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay.

“The notes have been seized and will be sent for forensic examination.

“If a member of the public suspects a bank note to be counterfeit, please report it as soon as possible.

“If you are caught knowingly distributing counterfeit cash you can face legal consequences.”
