Warning over fake money
The public was today warned to keep an eye out for fake Bermuda $100 notes.
A police spokesman said officers were alerted after a counterfeit bill was spotted at a bank.
He added that bank employees should also be on guard for suspicious cash.
The spokesman said: “The member of staff receiving the fake money should hold on to it, jot down a description of the individual who tendered it and contact police immediately.”
Police said that smaller denomination bills should also be carefully examined.
People who have received counterfeit cash should contact police on 295-0011 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
The spokesman said: “It is a criminal offence to pass to another, possess, make or reproduce any counterfeit currency, punishable by up to five years in prison, and those caught committing such offences can expect to be prosecuted.”
