The police investigate the distribution of fake banknotes in the Rías Baixas

Two groups that operated in commercial and leisure areas have been dismantled in the last month and a half

The National Police and the Civil Guard have spent weeks investigating the traffic of fake bills in different areas of the Rias Baixas taking advantage of the tourist pull. In the last month and a half, a strong increase in the distribution of units of 50 and 20 euros has been detected.

The security forces have managed to dismantle two groups that operated in commercial and leisure areas of Vigo, Portonovo and Sanxenxo, distributing copies of the originals of a "moderately acceptable" quality. This means that, within a scale of perfection, these imitations would obtain a remarkable high. "They are better than other fakes that have been detected on previous occasions and are more easily identifiable," police sources say.

The influx of tourists in the summer months explains the increase in counterfeit notes in circulation, whose origin is investigated. In this regard, one of the hypotheses is that the manufacturers are of Portuguese origin. Some criminals from the neighboring country are true experts in the use of state-of-the-art technological equipment to print imitations of paper money.

"To introduce the tickets in the market tend to take advantage of the bars that are now bursting in the summer," the same police sources explained yesterday. This procedure consists of two or three people going through pubs and discos and making drinks that they usually pay with 50 euros bills. "In one night you can visit fifteen stores, which has put a lot of fake money into circulation. Sometimes they do not even get to drink because they could not keep that rhythm of alcohol consumption to do their job, "they say.
To do this, the list provided a wad of 50 euro bills and, while the victim was keeping company with the fool, approached a lottery administration to take note of the raffle prizes and then show them to the victim, who could then check that the tenth that the fool showed him was effectively awarded with the indicated amount.
