Kent Police is warning people in Thanet to be aware of fake Scottish £20 notes that are circulating in the area.

 

 

Officers received a report of a counterfeit note in Margate on Tuesday 2 May 2017 and have reason to believe there may be more of them in the local area.

Police say the easiest way to identify a fake Scottish note is to look for a watermark, feel for raised print where the name of the bank is printed or by the general feel of the note. For further information visit www.acbi.org.uk/strong

Retailers should also continue to use UV detector lights where available.

Investigating officer Sergeant James Ross said: ‘We would urge everyone to be vigilant and check their notes. Shopkeepers should not allow the notes to go back into circulation and any incidents should be reported immediately to Kent Police by calling 101.’
