Austrian arrested after losing wallet full of fake notes

A 22-year-old Austrian man might have thought himself lucky after police in the city of Eisenstadt found his lost wallet -- had it not been full of ten fake 50 euro notes.

 

Having discovered the notes, the police were able to track down the man thanks to his identity card -- also in the wallet -- and arrested him.

 

Under questioning he admitted buying the fake notes online in order to buy drugs with them.

 

On Tuesday Austrian police announced they had helped identify and catch a forger in Poland suspected of selling 10,000 euros' (,800) worth of fake 50 euro notes over the so-called darknet.
