Haliburton retailers be careful, an increase in counterfeit currency is being passed in Muskoka. Bracebridge OPP responded to five calls this month regarding counterfeit American notes of varying denominations.

OPP want to remind local retailers that a method of payment used in transaction is a private agreement between the buyer and seller. Each has the right to accept, or refuse.

Police want local retailers to be wary if you suspect a note and use security features.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the OPP.
