False banknotes

The Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten has been informed through social media that there are counterfeit banknotes of 50 guilders in circulation on Curaçao.

The Bank wants to warn the public to pay close attention to accepting banknotes, and in particular banknotes of 50 guilders. If you have doubts about a banknote, you are advised to refuse this ticket.

Perhaps unnecessarily, the Bank would like to draw your attention to the fact that no person and / or institution can accept counterfeit banknotes. You are advised to call in the police as soon as possible if you think you are dealing with a counterfeit banknote. Falsification of money or deliberate payment with counterfeit money is punishable by imprisonment of up to nine years.
