POLICE are asking Mornington Peninsula traders and shoppers to watch out for counterfeit $50 and $100 notes.
They say a woman tried to pass a fake $50 note at the Australia Post shop in Rosebud Plaza on Thursday at 3.35pm to buy a pen costing $1.50. The attendant told the woman she thought the note was counterfeit. The woman said she would take it to the bank.
Five minutes later, the woman used the fake note to buy goods from the Discount Chemist outlet in Point Nepean Rd, Rosebud, and received $38 change.
The woman police want to question about the fake notes is described as being in her late 20s, Caucasian, 160cm tall, slim build, long dark hair, wearing animal print dress, black leggings, black leather jacket, red shoes and carrying a red handbag.
Details to Constable Simon Gibson, of Rosebud CIU, on 5986 0416.
