Police Warn of Counterfeit Money in NB

Police in New Brunswick are warning the public after counterfeit Canadian bills that have turned up five times in the Saint John area within the past couple of weeks. Phoney One Hundred, Fifty, Twenty and Ten Dollar denominations have been recovered. Police say while they have been made to replicate the new polymer bills – they’re poor quality fakes that feel like paper rather than plastic and lack security features. The bills have also been printed with small Chinese characters on them.
