Almost perfect falsifications of the Euro...

.. have popped up in Leeuwarden, in the North of the Netherlands, reports. The cashier in the supermarket felt something funny with the paper when she received the falso 100 euro notes. Went to the bank and found out about the falsifications. And as she also noted the license plate of the car that was being used by the crooks, they were captured rather quickly.

Earlier this week some more people were caught in Woerden en Mijdrecht with false notes of 100 and 200 euro. The police state that levels of bank note fraud are still lower than before the introduction of the euro.
