The RCMP are warning the public to be aware that counterfeit American money has been surfacing in Williams Lake.
Regular dollar bills, American and Canadian, have security features that are easy to detect that may include micro printing, colour shifting and watermarks all of which are easy to detect when people are familiar with them, the RCMP said in a press release issued Wednesday.
“The counterfeit bills appearing recently appear to be good quality photocopies but are absent of any security features,” the RCMP said. “Additionally they have been printed on standard paper which feels and looks different than a legitimate bill.”
Anyone having one of these types of bills in their possession is asked to bring them to the Williams Lake RCMP detachment.
