Police are issuing a warning to shoppers in the Beccles area after further incidents of counterfeit notes were passed to a shop. An initial incident took place at W H Smith in the Suffolk town earlier in February – when two suspects entered the shop and tried to make a payment of over £1000 in Scottish notes. These were all found to be counterfeit. Meanwhile, there have now been further reports on social media of additional attempts to pass on the fake notes to shop in Beccles town centre. The suspects, two men, were described as having Irish accents and were about five foot eight inches to five foot nine inches tall – and had dark hair and wore heavy black coats. Police would remind all shoppers and businesses to be aware – and anyone who has knowledge of a similar incident taking place should contact Suffolk police by phoning 101.
