“Let me remind persons that it is an offence to forge, utter, fraudulently convert and to possess fraudulent bank notes,” police public relations officer Inspector John Carbon said.

“Persons are asked to be vigilant especially business owners who on most occasions come into contact with these notes,” he added.

The police said that the fraudulent notes are mainly United States and East Caribbean currencies and that since the start of the year, 66 counterfeit notes of different denominations were reported to law enforcement authorities ranging from $10 to $100.

Carbon did not say whether any arrests have been made since the start of the year.
