Caution: Fake $100 Bills Being Passed Around in Edmonton Area

Please be wary of the bills you’re receiving, especially if it’s a $100 bill.

Edmonton Explorer on Twitter has informed us that they received a fake $100 bill earlier this morning.

The bill that was received by one of Edmonton’s locals was created by using the translucent and reflective part of the Canadian $5 bill, with the remainder of the bill being a fake underground printed version of the Canadian $100 bill.

There are quite a few ways people are creating fake Canadian bills, but all of them are quite easy to identify as fake without severe inspection. Taking a quick look at your bills can end up saving you a lot of money one day.

Here is the original tweet made by Edmonton Explorer:

This is not the first time $100 Canadian bills have been counterfeited.

Taking a quick look at Google Images shows many other prior attempts.

Thank you Edmonton Explorer, for helping spread the word about this.

This is a kind reminder that it is crucial to check the bills that you receive throughout the week. After all, once it’s given to you, knowingly or not, it’s officially your loss.

SHOULD WE WRITE MORE STORIES LIKE THIS?
