The Bank of England has urged retailers to check banknotes over the busy festive period.

Christmas is a busy time for both retailers and the public and more cash changes hands than at any other time of the year. Unfortunately it provides an opportunity for criminals to pass on counterfeit notes as payment.

During this busy time, the Bank of England are reminding retailers and businesses to check that banknotes being passed in transactions are genuine, and to ensure staff know what to do if they suspect a banknote is counterfeit.

While they will work hard to stay one step ahead of the fraudsters, it is important you check the right security features on £5, £10, £20 and £50 banknotes when they are passed in transactions.
