Fake Canadian currency is prompting a warning from RCMP in Saskatchewan.
Mounties from the Humboldt and Battlefords detachments are warning businesses and residents in the areas to keep an eye out for the counterfeit bills, which contain blue Chinese characters and feel like paper instead of plastic.
“The bills are poor quality,” an RCMP media release states. “Close inspection of the bills will quickly expose them as being fake.”
Any businesses or residents in the Humboldt or Battlefords areas who come into contact with the counterfeit money are asked to contact RCMP at 306-682-2535 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
