European Central Bank Report on Counterfeits
July 23, 2007

This time of year, the European Central Bank issues their semi-annual report on counterfeit Euros found.

The stats are all on my associate David Kranz's Digital Watermark blog.

The numbers are interesting. It shows that the 50 Euro note is more counterfeited than the 100 Euro note.

What is more interesting is the amount of information presented on the ECB's site. They are very forthcoming about news - both good and bad. They may not tell us how to identify the counterfeits, but the news that they are out there is a lot more informaiton than we in the United States get from the Federal Reserve Bank site. Not even hard numbers from the Fed.

So we in the states need to be vigilant.
