Counterfeit money circulating in Launceston

australian 2874029 960 720

Counterfeit $100 notes are reportedly in circulation in the Launceston region.

Concerned Launceston resident Brett called into Tasmania Talks this morning to warn retailers to be on high alert.

This comes after Brett witnessed a young woman trying to pass the counterfeit money off as the real thing in the Launceston CBD.


Brett describes the dodgy money as feeling like paper, rather than the plastic feel of legitimate money. The notes feature Chinese symbols and do not have transparent windows (sample image above).

Have you had an experience with counterfeit money?
