During this Christmas Season the Bermuda Police Service – Community Action Teams developed an initiative entitle “Be a Part of a Miracle” that’s aim is to assist families during the Christmas season that are experiencing challenging circumstances.
The Bermuda Police Service continues to advise businesses and their staff as well as residents to remain vigilant regarding counterfeit Bermuda currency, particularly forged $50 and $100 notes, currently in circulation.
In a recently reported incident three counterfeit Bermuda $100 notes, all bearing the same serial number 135699, were apparently tendered at a business earlier this week.
The Bermuda Police Service has noticed an increase in the number of counterfeit Bermuda $50 notes being reported to police recently. The most recent is A1498951.
With the holiday season upon us, businesses are asked to remind their staff to be especially vigilant when accepting larger denominations, in particular the old style Bermuda notes.
