National Police issues warning about counterfeit currency

THE National Police is recommending that everyone look closely at their €10 and €20 notes.

Many counterfeit notes are now in circulation, particularly in Murcia and police warned business-owners to be particularly watchful when €10 and €20 notes are handed over in payment.

The notes should be easy to spot, particularly for English-speakers, as they all bear a blue-printed warning on the reverse side, “This is not legal tender, it is used for motion props.”

They also bear the Movie Money trademark just below the European Union flag on the top left-hand corner on the front of each note.
