Forged notes appear on Cayman Brac

| 06/04/2009

(CNS): Police said today (Monday 6 April) that residents and business owners in Cayman Brac need to be on the look out for forged cash as a result of reports made to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service from the island that counterfeit currency has been presented at businesses on the Island. Area Commander, Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay said that the most effected notes appear to be US notes at the moment, but that residents should look out for all kinds of counterfeit currency.

 “In the event that you receive a counterfeit note, or suspect one to be counterfeit, we ask that you observe and note the appearance of the person passing the note, as well as that of any companions,” he said. “Do not return the note to the passer. Instead, tag the note with a copy of the transaction receipt and call the police.”

Kay said to keep the suspect note separate from others by placing it in an envelope or small bag and not to deposit it at the bank. The RCIPS form for reporting counterfeit money can be found on the CIMA website www.cimoney.com.ky, under “Currency.”

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
