Business owners and the public are being warned that forged €50 notes are being traded in the town.
The Letterkenny Chamber issued the alert via Facebook today, warning staff to be on alert for fraudulent activity and take necessary steps to check all cash.
A message from ShopLK warned “There is a large batch of fake €50 notes circulating in Letterkenny. Please check all notes.”
Some businesses have invested in scanners in a bid to beat con artists.
Those who suspect people of trying to pass these forged notes are advised to contact Gardaí.
