Belleville, Ontario ? On 28 June, 2010 at 1:45 p.m., police attended at the Quinte Mall in response to two complaints of an alleged counterfeit $100.00. Two businesses reported that a male attempted to make a small purchase with a $100.00 bill. The male is described as 20 to 30 years, slightly over 5' tall, dark complexion and dark brown eyes.

Belleville Police Service is reminding the public to be aware of counterfeit notes and to use the TiLL method to determine authenticity:

  • Touch the bill ? bank note paper has a unique feel with raised ink on the front of the bill
  • Tilt the bill ?watch for the changing colours of the numbers and the two-toned maple leaves in the metallic stripe
  • Look through the bill ? hold the bill up to the light and look for the ghost image and puzzle number near the middle
  • Look at the bill ? you need to look carefully to make sure it appears and works as it should when you tilt or look through the note
