Police warn of counterfeit banknotes in circulation

South and Southern Jutland Police warn citizens and businesses that there are currently counterfeit banknotes in circulation.

It writes the police district in a press release.

It has so far received 25 reviews so far, nine of which came in August.

In the vast majority of cases, the persons have paid with counterfeit 1000-krone banknotes.

There have been a few cases of counterfeit 500-krone banknotes. Just as there have been a few cases of counterfeit euro banknotes this year, it reads.

– The criminals speculate that the staff at the checkout only have a few seconds to assess a banknote in connection with serving the customers, says Deputy Police Inspector Christian Østergaard from the South and Southern Jutland Police Prevention Section in the press release.

– And the typical procedure is that the criminals buy goods for a small amount and pay with the fake 1000-krone note, or ask if you can exchange.

Therefore, according to him, the police encourage both citizens and traders to be “extremely vigilant” – especially if they were to receive 1000-krone banknotes.

You should also not hesitate to contact the police if you suspect.
