The Swift Current Municipal RCMP have received a number of complaints within the last week of individuals using counterfeit bills in businesses within Swift Current.
The RCMP are requesting employees to be vigilant when accepting bills from customers, especially at busy times during the day.
These bills resemble the newer Polymer notes currently in circulation, but are slightly off in colour and have taped on security features. Although currently the RCMP has only received $50 bills, there may be counterfeit bills in other denominations in the area. If any businesses have suspected counterfeit bills, please contact Swift Current RCMP at 306-778-4870 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
