Fake notes on Abbeydale Road

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up about a guy attempting to pass fake notes on Abbeydale Road, near the junction with Carter Knowle Road this week. He's in his mid 20s, stocky, average height, fair hair with a left sided parting and his accent sounds eastern European. Making small purchases with fake £20 notes to get legit change. I guess he'll have moved on now but just in case you run a business down there or know someone who does, keep a look out.

Probably has a load he wants to get rid of before they are recalled

It's been quiet for a while on the £20 note scam, as people are alert to it. The guy probably took them off the hands of someone.

 

As you suggest Pattricia the new plastic ones will probably be in circulation soon.

They are probably making the new 20s a lot more more difficult to forge than the smaller value notes, hence the 2020 introduction date.

Lots of fake money going around recently. If you work in a shop, buy one of those pens that detect fakes.
