Warning over fake 50 euro notes
The Civil Guard has warned of counterfeit notes of 50 euros circulating in the southeast of Gran Canaria.
In case of doubt, they recommend not accepting any suspicious notes and report the incident immediately with as much information as possible.
“If someone suspects that he has accepted a counterfeit bill, it should not be given to another person, since it would be a crime,” a spokesman warned.
The suspect note should then be takend to the police authorities, a credit institution or any branch of the Bank of Spain and, if it were authentic, its value would be recovered.
Unfortunately, if the bill is false, it is not redeemable and the owner loses its value.
