New Glasgow Regional Police are warning some counterfeit American currency is making the rounds in the local area. Reports from local businesses indicate
the bogus bills are in 100 dollar denominations.
Police spokesman Constable Ken MacDonald says the bills appear to be very realistic and authentic. He adds
technology has become increasingly sophisticated in making these bills and harder to detect.
You are not required to accept a bill if you believe it’s counterfeit. If you end up with this fake currency, call the police at (902) 752-1941.
