A Fake Plastic fiver has been handed in at a shop in Haverfordwest – a town in Wales. While it may not be in Blackpool – It’s not too far away and shows that copying these “harder to copy” fivers isn’t that hard after all. Blackpool is a prime target for anyone wanting to spend fake notes so we are urging business owners and staff to be extra vigilant.
As you can see from the photograph – the bottom note is the fake. The printing looks a little darker, Big Ben and the crown are missing and the Holograms are obviously wrong.
Would you check that if it felt like plastic though?
Make sure you check your currency correctly!!
