Fake notes found

Shayal Devi

MEMBERS of the public are urged to keep in mind the features that can help identify fake notes.

The advice comes after a fake note was discovered in Nadi earlier this week.

West police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said an accountant of Oceanic Holdings Fiji Ltd discovered the counterfeit $20 bill.

"This was discovered after the accountant was tallying cash at the end of the business day," Mrs Ragigia said.

"The suspected fake note had a different note texture, the size of the note was a bit smaller than a normal $20 note, the colour of the note was faded and the watermarks were not clear."

Mrs Ragigia said the matter was reported to the Namaka Police Station.

"Once again, members of the public are urged to be cautious while dealing with notes and be well informed of the features of our new currency circulated last year.

"Take your time to examine notes upon transaction to avoid disappointment for yourselves or your business."
