Counterfeit Currency

Alert message sent 03/09/2020 10:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police


Bodmin Police have been made aware of some counterfeit currency circulating around the town, particularly in the town centre. We've received reports of individuals using or attempting to use these 'Twenty Poond' notes in shops and takeaways.
As you can see from the attached photos, these notes are clearly fake. They are all exactly the same, with the same serial number and wording identifying it as 'toy' money. I'll also attach a link to Action Fraud on what to do if you fall victim to this scam.
We ask shopkeepers to remain vigilant when accepting notes.
