Police are investigating a case involving the use of counterfeit ISK 10,000 (USD 88, EUR 83) bills. Last week, such bills were used to pay for meals at a restaurant in downtown Reykjavík, Vísir reports.
Earlier this month, a man attempted to pay for service at a gas station in the eastern part of Reykjavík with a counterfeit ISK 10,000 bill, but thanks to the employee, the man was arrested.
Police ask salespeople to be on the alert, and encourage them to become informed about security features of Icelandic bills on the website of the Central Bank of Iceland. Please call 112 if you notice counterfeit bills.
