Counterfeit money on the streets

Counterfeit money on the streets

The Royal Barbados Police Force is warning residents, especially business owners, to be on the lookout for counterfeit money.

A number of fake Barbados notes, mainly of $100 denomination, have been seized through investigations and a number of persons have been arrested, charged and placed before the courts, a police statement today said.

“Some of these fake bills have been passed as payment to local businesses. The public is also informed that it is a criminal offence to make counterfeit currency, as well as to knowingly offer one as payment, even if you were not the person who made it.

“Both the Central Bank of Barbados and the police are advising all persons to become familiar with the security features of genuine Barbadian bank notes… It is important to be aware of the security features found on the currency,” the cops said.
