Beware of counterfeit cash

Police are urging Barbadians and businesses to be on the look out for counterfeit cash.

In a statement, Acting Inspector Police Public Relations Officer Roland Cobbler urged business owners and individuals to be extremely vigilant when receiving cash for goods and services especially during the night or when there are high volumes of customers.

The force also advised business owners to invest in counterfeit detectors and to ensure that workers who handle money are trained to detect fake notes.

Police warned that it is an offence to knowingly distribute counterfeit currency and it urged the public to report all cases involving counterfeit cash to the Financial Crimes Unit at 430 7195 or the nearest police station.
