Counterfeit money in East Gippsland
Police are asking business owners and employees to be vigilant as a number of counterfeit $50 notes have been used in East Gippsland this week.
Business operators are asked to check their registers in an attempt to locate any more fake currency.
The notes have obvious indicators that they are not legal, although they may be easily overlooked in busy work conditions.
Police are asking anyone with information, or CCTV footage of the passing of these notes, to contact Bairnsdale Police Station on 5150 2600 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
