Fake Euro notes used as FILM props get into circulation across Spain sparking police alert

Fake Money

Police in Spain have issued an alert over fake Euro notes used as film props which are appearing all over the country.

The money, in denominations of five and ten Euros, looks authentic but bears the words in English ‘This is not legal tender, it’s used for motion props’.

Businesses and shops have already fallen victim to the scam, even though the warning on the note is clearly legible.

Police are warning people, including tourists, to be on alert and are investigating how they got into circulation.

They say the notes were made for use in films and commercials and are of poor quality when inspected closely.

Most of the fake money is in five and ten Euro notes but some are of more value, including 20 Euros and 50 Euros.

But these are not being used as much because businesses tend to give them greater scrutiny and there is more chance of the culprits being caught.
