Counterfeit Notes

Alert message sent 31/05/2018 12:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

From PCSO Teresa Key. Please be vigilant there are counterfeit £20 notes in the Lincolnshire area.  They show up ok under the UV light so look genuine. To identify the counterfeit note you will see a slight orange tinge to the left of the queen’s head and a little bleaching of purple around the queen’s face, if you look quickly at the note you would not notice the difference. The people concerned are using busy periods/events to pass the notes on.   There are batches of numbers being used one being DJ10378073.  It is important that we get as much information as possible regarding persons passing these notes. If you come across one of these notes, please hand it into your bank or building society.  Thank you.
