Counterfeit Notes:    IT PAYS TO BE VIGILANT.  
Use the following tips:

1. What does it feel like? Counterfeit notes may feel much thicker or thinner compared to a genuine banknote.

2. Look for the coat of Arms: When you hold the banknote to the light, you should see the Australian coat of Arms.

3. Look for the Star: Diamond shaped patterns are printed inside a circle on both sides of the banknote.

 4. Check the window: Check that the window is clear and cannot be rubbed off, and also the patterns are the same as a genuine banknote.

5. Feel the dark printing: The black and shaded areas are printed with a special raised ink that can be felt with your finger.

If you have received a counterfeit note:  Report it immediately to Police.

Handle the banknote as little as little as possible:  store it in an envelope.

LOCK IT OR LOSE IT

NHW keys

Do you go away on holidays in your Caravan?  Please lock and secure any equipment that will not fit into your van of a night before you retire.

Consider engraving equipment and remember to always lock your van and vehicle. Check that your vehicle and trailer plates are still in place.

Unfortunately the same applies to home security.  Lock it up!  Do not leave equipment or tools at home unsecured. Keep your house and sheds secure. Consider engraving. Take photos of valuables and record any identifying marks.

Our next NHW meeting will be on the 14th of August at 09.00 at the Burrum Heads Community Hall.
Come for an informal chat and morning tea.
