THE Public has been warned to look out for fake $100 notes said to have been circulating in Honiara.
Various people had already reported being sold the counterfeit not in the past weeks.
One of the victims, who is a betel nut seller at Rove said someone used the counterfeit note this week to buy betel nut and that she could not tell.
“It looked very real especially when we were not alerted of any counterfeit currency note circulation.”
She said the fake currency note can be identified by looking for the silver plastic on the note.
“It is missing and also the paper it is made of is not very rigid and can easily fade.”
The Central Bank of Solomon Islands (CBSI) had issued warnings in the past and also carried out awareness programs about the features of the country’s currency notes.
