Counterfeit dollars being peddled in Princeton.
 
A warning from the RCMP in Princeton has been issued after there were at least nine instances last week where counterfeit American $20 and $50 bills were used to purchase goods.
 
According to police, the incidents happened on Dec 5th.
 
A younger couple and older couple bought small items with American bills to receive Canadian change or paid for big ticket items with American bills and returned the items for Canadian currency.
 
Pictures of three suspects have been made available.(see above)
 
It's believed, but not yet confrimed the suspects attempted the scam in Merritt as well, so area merchants are being warned to keep an eye out for them and potential counterfeit American $20 and $50 bills.
