Bogus Bills

Some bogus bills are making their way around Lunenburg County. During the past week, approximately ten counterfeit 100 dollar bills have been offered as genuine currency to various retailers in Lunenburg County. RCMP say the bills in question were part of the 1986 series of bank notes often referred to as the "Birds of Canada" series. All Canadian bank notes have security features that are reliable, quick and easy to use. Police say by making it a habit to check two or more of the features when you accept cash, you can avoid being stuck with a counterfeit.
For further information on Canadian banknotes and the security features, you can refer to the Bank of Canada website. www.bankofcanada.ca
