COUNTERFEIT $50 NOTES SPOTTED AROUND CANBERRA
by Katarina Slavich
Police are urging us to check our $50 notes, after reports of counterfeit notes circulating around Canberra.
Police say they've been called out to 35 local businesses over the past two months with reports of the fake notes.
We're being urged to check our notes, especially those who work in stores, and if it doesn't look legitimate, don't accept it.
You can tell a $50 note is real by holding it up to the light, and seeing a seven-pointed star formed within a circle.
If you know about the production of counterfeit currency, or know of anyone who's received a fake note, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via https://act.crimestoppers.com.au./
