Fraud - Counterfeit Currency Advisory

The Saskatoon Police Service Fraud Section is advising businesses of fraudulent activity involving counterfeit $50 and $100 bills.
There are several complaints by businesses recently that they have received the bills which appear to be authentic. Investigators believe the suspects involved are removing the holographic stripe from $5 and $10 bills and placing them on counterfeit $50 and $100 bills.
Businesses are advised to check all denominations carefully when receiving them and contact the Saskatoon Police Service if they appear to be suspicious.
For more information please contact Det. Sgt. Jerry Boechler at 975-8261.
