Two individuals, an 18-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, have been arrested in Rotorua for allegedly manufacturing counterfeit bank notes. The police seized equipment used to create fake 10, 20, and 50 dollar notes. The suspects are facing charges of possessing forged bank notes, forging bank notes, and possessing implements for counterfeiting. The counterfeit notes were printed on easily torn paper, unlike genuine banknotes that are printed on polymer. Retailers are advised to carefully examine banknotes using the “look, feel, and tilt” method to identify genuine currency. Anyone who receives a fake banknote is encouraged to place it in an envelope, avoid handling it further, and report it to the police.
