COUNTERFEIT EASTERN CARIBBEAN DOLLARS CIRCULATING IN GR...  
Grenada police today urged people to be on the lookout for counterfeit East Caribbean dollars.

It said that the counterfeit EC$50 and EC$100 dollar notes were now in circulation here and that they had the serial numbers VM033672 and SR380132 respectively.
“The public is urged to exercise utmost vigilance and caution when doing business. Small business operators such as bus drivers, taxi operators, shop keepers, vendors and the likes are urged to be on their guard.”

The police did not say whether the circulation of the counterfeit currency was linked to the island's Carnival celebrations that ended on Tuesday but they warned that it is a criminal offence to have counterfeit money in their possession or to pass it on .

Grenada along with six other Caribbean countries, namely Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Montserrat and Anguilla share the same currency.
