Police are urging shops to beware of forged £20 notes being used in a Devon town.
One business in Paignton identified two fake notes handed over as payment in two separate incidents.
PC Simon Lee said: "Retailers are often busy and don't take so much time to check the legitimacy of notes."
Police said real £20 notes are slightly embossed at the top and if marked with money-marking pens the mark fades over several days.
