Police warning over “false” two euros
The Civil Guard has issued an alert about a false two euro coin scam doing the rounds.
The 500 Mexican peso, valued at just 0.14 euros, is very similar in appearance to the two euro coin and the same size.
Their use is taking many people by surprise as it is very difficult to spot immediately if given amongst other change.
The police warning follows several reports of the scam which appears to be escalating.
The alert is being relayed via the Civil Guard’s Twitter site.
