Fake 50's in Tassie!

Tasmania Police have issued warnings following reports of a number of counterfeit $50 notes being passed around the State.

The notes are clearly fake and have, what looks like, Chinese characters printed on both sides. Police have said they are reviewing CCTV footage at a number of businesses.

Police are asking business, particularly smaller businesses that operate in regular cash transactions to be vigilant in checking the authenticity of notes tendered to them by members of the public.

If you come across a fake note, Police have advised to keep it and contact them or the Hobart CIB on 131 444

Two images of seized fake notes have been authorized for release so as to raise public awareness.
