In late November of this year, a local eatery in Stettler Alberta experienced a troubling incident when a man tried to pass off a counterfeit hundred dollar bill to pay for his meal.
The business did not accept the money and the male left without further incident. RCMP have advised merchants to be ever vigilant and be on the lookout for these counterfeit bills.
With the hustle and bustle of the season, it can be difficult to keep your eyes on everything but you must be aware that the possibility of people trying to make purchases with the fake money can occur especially during the holidays.
If you do accept counterfeit money or have any information on the counterfeit money contact your local RCMP or Crimestoppers
