Crime of the Week – Counterfeit Bills


Crime of the Week – Counterfeit Bills

Crime Stoppers has been contacted by a local business advising that they have received 2 counterfeit Canadian $100 bills in the past week. The fake bills making the rounds are replicas of the 1969-1979 “Scenes of Canada” series. They began appearing in early 2017 in London and there have been reports of them in Sarnia as well.

They are interesting because they are old style money and something many of us don’t see anymore. However, if someone presents one of these bills a payment in a retail setting the clerk should be highly suspicious of the bills being counterfeit.

They look and feel authentic but when closely examined they are missing the security features. As well, when they get wet the ink will run and rub off.

If you know who the persons responsible for passing these counterfeit bills are call Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477 with your anonymous information. You could earn a cash reward.

If you have any information regarding this or any other crime please call CRIME STOPPERS at 519-351-8477, or 1-800-222-8477, or visit and email your tip.

Crime Stoppers guarantees your anonymity, we never ask for your name or your phone number. WE pay cash for YOUR tips.
