Fake Scottish bank notes doing the rounds of Norfolk

Fake Scottish bank notes doing the rounds of Norfolk

Police are warning people of counterfeit Scottish bank notes that are in circulation in Norfolk. 

The Scottish money is legal tender in England but it's unusual to come across them.

That's why it's even more important to check the notes thoroughly if you get one.

 

This is the advice from Breckland Police:

  • Familiarise yourself with the security features of genuine notes 
  • Make sure you take sufficient time to check banknotes thoroughly when you receive them.
  • If you have any doubt, compare the suspect note with another note that you know to be genuine.
  • Remember to examine a number of features rather than relying on the existence of just one feature when deciding whether or not a note is genuine.
  • It is important to remember that counterfeit notes are valueless.

It is a criminal offence to hold or to pass a note that you know to be a counterfeit.

Officers are keen to speak with anyone with information or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
