To think this could be a fake note

Sorry dont know where to put this. I have attached a photo. There's another 2 like this as well. The paper feels slightly funny (I think) If you hold them up to the light the hologram is shown but you can see it when it is not held up to the light as well. The hologram does show a 10 but not a picture when you tilt it. It smells a bit like bleach as well. £30 pound is a lot to loose if i went to tesco what are my chances of them spotting it (if it is a fake) and if they are spotted what would happen would the police be called. Thank you

You do realise the writing is back to front too?

MissDexter Wed 30-Dec-15 15:27:32

Is the note back to front or just your picture?

Where's the silver strip? Can you tear it? That's a good indicator ime.
If they spot it, call the police and make a complaint you could be arrested.

Not, where did you get them from?
If somebody came to my shop with this, I wouldn't call the police but I wouldn't accept it obviously.
Tesco might have procedures where they must call the police

Its just the way i took the photo i took it on computer web cam. If im honest i cant remember where i got it from but it was not from ATM.

You might be asked where it came from if you do get called in by the police. If you know it's fake ( not accusing you here but if you've 'acquired' these dodgy notes ) and want to try your luck a big shop with security is probably not the place to do so!

Silver strip is shown when held up to light but also when not. If that makes sense. What do you mean can i tear it.

Any bank will be able to tell you if it's a fake or not.

Sometimes very new notes can feel a bit odd, simply because we're used to handling older notes that have gone softer over time.

It is a crime to try to use as legal tender any note that you know to be or suspect to be fake.

Do you know where these notes came from?

The only legal thing for you to do is take them to a bank or police station to be checked for whether they are legal.

If fake and they came from someone you know to be honest, they are part of a chain leading back to the original criminal who first used them as tender. That person is a thief having obtained goods or services without paying for them.

It looks like the photo has been taken using selfie mode on the camera...?

makingitthroughok Wed 30-Dec-15 15:31:43

I dont its fake, i think it could be.

UnGoogleable Wed 30-Dec-15 15:32:15

Just take them to a bank

What kind of camera would reverse part of an image but not the whole lot

Happyrouter Wed 30-Dec-15 15:34:57

Stealth it would take the pic like that on a phone in selfie mode.

Op, could the smell and feel be a result of going through the wash maybe? No idea about the hologram
