Watch out for fake $50s

POLICE are warning people across the Northern Rivers to be on the lookout for $50 counterfeit notes.

A number of the fake notes have been handed into police at Lismore and Nimbin.

Police said the $50 notes that have been handed in appear to have the transparent window attached separately.

The outline of the clear window is also rough instead of being smooth.

Anyone who comes across counterfeit currency is asked to hand them in to their local police station or bank.

The fake $50 notes received have been sent to the Australian Federal Police for further investigation.
