In the Facebook post, PC Dingley wrote: "I have seized these Royal Bank of Scotland £50 notes today from a retail premises in Ivybridge. They are fake - spot the same serial number and lack of hologram. They are also quite green looking and feel different to a normal Scottish note. Persons who used them to buy goods were described as white, Irish and aged approximately 16-18 years old. Retail premises please be extra vigilant if Scottish notes are being used."
