More and more euro-falsifications

Raad Nederlandse Detailhandel, an umbrella organisation for retailers, has announced that the quality of bank note falsifications is so good that false bank notes are difficult to detect at the point of sale. As a result, retailers may get stuck with false bank notes for which they receive no money when depositing it at the bank. Consequently Raad NDH has called for adapted reimbursement conditions.

The amount of false bank notes taken out of circulation was 145.153 in the first half year of 2002 and is 230.534 in the first half year of 2003.
