RCMP warns of counterfeit currency incidents


Nova Scotia RCMP would like to advise the public that over the past four weeks, there have been multiple investigations into counterfeit bills circulating in Annapolis, Kings, Lunenburg and Yarmouth counties. Some cases involve bills with symbols added, or, others that have been defaced.

Passing counterfeit money is a crime. The RCMP reminds consumers to be diligent when accepting cash to avoid becoming a victim to these types of crimes, especially in light of the fact that if you unknowingly accept a counterfeit bill, you cannot be reimbursed. To learn about the security features on bank notes, visit the Bank of Canada’s website www.bankofcanada.ca/banknotes‎.

If you have any information about these incidents or spot currency similar to the bills described, you are asked to contact the RCMP at 902-490-5020 in the Halifax Region or 800-803-RCMP (7267) outside of Halifax‎ Region. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca, or use the P3 Tips App.
