Beware Counterfeit 50 Euro Bank notes in circulation

The PSP of Porto announced Wednesday (12th December) the arrest of two young men in the centre of the city for allegedly passing counterfeit 50 euro bank notes.

In a statement, PSP reports that, after receiving information about a “couple” who “had attempted to pay an apparently false 50-euro bill” in a commercial establishment, police officers intercepted two young men, aged 19 and 21, at another store in Rua do Heroísmo, “where they paid an expense of about five euros with a 50 euro bill.”

The PSP is alerting people that this type of crime may increase during the festive season.
