Counterfeit money makes the world go round…

Check your bills. 2010 brought 60,000 false bank notes to the country. More than half of it were 50-Euro-bills. So the old trick to identify counterfeit money doesn’t seem to work anymore: “How can you say this is a fake bill if you have never seen a 23-Euro-bill?”

The German Bundesbank cannot laugh about this joke. Comparing to 2009, their financial loss grew by almost 10 percent to 3.4 Million Euros.

Any news about this problem from your side of the Atlantic, West?
