Fraud - Counterfeit Currency Advisory

The Saskatoon Police Service Fraud Section continues to receive reports of fraudulent activity involving counterfeit $100 bills.

The complaints come mainly from businesses which are receiving the bills. They appear to be authentic because, Investigators believe, the suspects involved are removing the holographic stripe from $5 and $10 bills and placing them on the $100 bills.

Recently the Fraud Section has been receiving complaints about this activity on a daily basis. 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.
