Subject: Counterfeit money

In the beginning of this year there was some counterfeit money (Euros) around here in Spain, where the serial numbers were missing. I must say I have not noticed it since, but a few weeks ago I paid with a Euro 10.00 note in a shop and I was given a handful of change and in it were some pesetas and other obsolete European currency. It was not in a shop, but from a beach vendor and by the time I had noticed it, he was naturally long gone....

There are still posters hanging in most shops which depict all the Euro notes and coins, so you can check there if the note (or coins) you have been given are ok.
