counterfeit-currencyPolice are advising people to be on the lookout for counterfeit currency after a quick thinking teller at a Tweed Heads drive-through takeaway rejected a fake note on Tuesday (May 17).

There is currently no description available of the person who attempted to pass the counterfeit $50 note, which was rejected by the staff member before the would-be fraudster drove away from the drive-through.

Police are advising the community that there has been an increase of counterfeit currency being identified in NSW and are calling on staff who handle money to be vigilant when dealing with cash notes.

If counterfeit notes are identified at the time of being presented, police request that detailed descriptions of the person attempting to pass are obtained and in the event of a vehicle being used then registration details and description of the vehicle is also needed.

Any member of the community that has information about these counterfeit notes can provide anonymous information to police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
