PHONEY £20 notes are being circulated in and around Rugby.
Rugby Police have put out a warning about the notes on social media.
A spokesperson said: “These have no value and are worthless, so we would like to make you aware of what security features you need to look out for.”
Genuine notes have a hologram on the same side as the Queen which changes between ‘Twenty’ and ‘Pounds’ when tilted, a metallic image over the main window, and a second smaller window in the bottom corner of the note.
There is also a Braille feature consisting of three dots on the top left hand corner of a real £20 note, which is not present on the counterfeit notes in circulation.
Anyone who comes across a counterfeit note is asked to report it to police by calling 101.
