PROFILE WAS AIRED WEEK OF MARCH 18-24, 2016
CRIME STOPPERS and DURHAM REGIONAL POLICE would like to remind citizens to be aware of an increase in the use of counterfeit U.S. currency. Small and medium sized businesses can be financially affected by the passing of counterfeit currency. Not every U.S. bill passed will be fraudulent, however it is important for consumers and retailers to be educated on counterfeit currency in order to protect their businesses. Making or passing counterfeit currency, whether U.S., Canadian or otherwise, is a criminal offence. Further information can also be found on the Bank of Canada website which includes examples of counterfeit currency.
If you have any information about people involved in this type of activity, please call Crime Stoppers.
CRIME STOPPERS will pay up to $2000 cash for ANY information that leads to an arrest in this or ANY criminal matter. Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display. Remember: CRIME doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does.
