In the past few months, there have been several reports to the Winnipeg Police that counterfeit bills have been showing up.

The suspects are essentially trying to swap the fake bills for real ones, ie. “Hey, I need some Canadian cash, but I only have this US ‘fitty’. Can you help me?’

There are many security features on US bills, as well as Canadian currency, that you should be aware of. One feature I saw for the first time (on all CDN bills) is the invisible ink on the bills that shows up when you go glow-bowling.
