RCMP Warn of Increase in Counterfeit U.S. C-Notes

February 28, 2012 12:28 PM | News

RCMP are warning the public and businesses to be vigilant after a recent increase in counterfeit $100 U.S. bills circulating in Winnipeg.

The RCMP Financial Integrity Unit says some businesses falsely believe they are protecting themselves by not accepting large value notes, but counterfeiters can target all notes.

There are a number of ways to determine whether a bill is fake or not. For U.S. currency, the public can visit MoneyFactory.gov. In Canada, information on counterfeit prevention can be found at BankofCanada.ca.
