An incident was reported via our secure online portal (DISC) that a number of individuals had attempted to purchase a low value item of stock with high denominations of counterfeit notes. The reporting member was aware they had been approaching other stores in the city, so an alert was sent out to all members via DISC.
The following day the same individuals were seen entering another store and because the manager of that store had seen the DISC alert, they contacted the police straight away. The individuals were arrested by the Police and on arrest the individuals had large volumes of counterfeit notes in their possession.
This shows that by members sharing intelligence and utilising DISC to alert other members, that positive action will be taken by Police, arrests will be made, counterfeit notes taken out of circulation and also preventing further loss to other businesses in the city.
