Serial # EJU8125472

Serial # EJN2484950

Serial # EJU7783471

· Poor paper quality – thicker than normal

· Use of a $10 hologram instead of a $100 hologram

· The hologram was cut unevenly and affixed using an adhesive

· No watermark present

· “100” feature number was not aligned when held up to a light

· Presence of blue and red ink on the bill suggests an ink jet printer

· No raised ink present on the bill

· Braille was uneven and appeared to be punched with a sharp tool

· Brailed was located in the upper centre of the bill

· Lettering was blurry

· Vertical dashes (security thread) on the back of the bill appears to be either gold nail polish or foil

   It is an offence to possess, use or duplicate money. This includes scanning, photocopying and photographing. Any person or business who receives a suspected counterfeit bill is asked to report it to police.

   The Economic Crimes Unit reminds businesses to ensure that cash-handling employees take an extra moment to examine any bills they are given prior to accepting them as many of these counterfeits could have been detected at a glance.

   If you have information on counterfeiting activity please contact police at 403-328-4444 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
