The Williams Lake RCMP have received several reports of American counterfeit bills in various denominations during the last month.
Police would like to remind the public to be vigilant and to carefully examine the American bills they receive.
All bills, both Canadian and American, have security features that are easy to detect.
Security features may include microprinting, color shifting and watermarks all of which are easy to detect when people are familiar with them.
The counterfeit bills seen recently appear to be good quality photocopies but are absent of any security features. Additionally, these counterfeit bills have been printed on standard paper which feels and looks different than a legitimate bill.
If you think a bill is counterfeit exercise caution and do not accept it.
RCMP ask if you are in possession of such a bill to attend the Williams Lake RCMP Detachment.
