Another forged $50 note has been found in Invercargill.

Police said the note had been through the system and was discovered among cash a customer received from a bank.

A counterfeit $50 note was used at Pomona Street Takeaways at the end of November and was only discovered when banked.

Earlier, an Invercargill bank sent cash to the Reserve Bank, which picked out another forged $50.

The note was a colour photocopy and at first glance could be hard to pick. On closer inspection, though, the fake lacked the watermark of the Queen's head and the metal insert at the opposite end.
