Report about counterfeits half-year 2011


In the first half of 2011, the Federal Bank registered 18.852 counterfeit Euro banknotes in payment transactions. The number of counterfeits thus fell by 28 per cent against the second half of 2010 (26.298). The loss by counterfeit banknotes was almost 1,1 million Euros. The improvement is evident in the fact that companies invest primarily in counterfeit detector or banknote counting machines with counterfeit detection. Thus, it can be directly checked whether the note is genuine or not. Stay alert and detect your money carefully.
