Counterfeit Cash

Halifax regional police have issued a warning that counterfeit Canadian bills are circulating in the area.

They say officers have retrieved a counterfeit 100-dollar Canadian bill from a clothing store on Spring Garden Road in Halifax.

It had been used to pay for a purchase sometime during the day last Sunday.

Police warn businesses and citizens they may not be reimbursed if they unknowingly accept a counterfeit bill and should always check the security features on bank notes before accepting them.
