A couple goes to dinner at a restaurant in a shopping center in Madrid in the middle of Christmas. After dessert called the account and paid 50 euros a ticket. Minutes later, the waiter with his face twisted and informed the couple who can not accept the bill because it is false. Interestingly, the bill appears very deteriorated and apparently is not the same as Delivered by those customers. Marriage, surprised, complain to the waiter that this is not your ticket, but the restaurant employee says that if does not pay the bill with another bill will make it known to the mall or the police.
Scenes how are you frequently occur in shops and Spanish restaurants in recent years owing to the increasing circulation of counterfeit identification difficult and worsening of the crisis. To avoid these cases, the police and various agencies from time to time publish recommendations for consumers to recognize the “pieces” true from false.
But do consumers have the means to ensure that these recommendations serve as anything? For who assures consumers that when you give a ticket to pay for a drink in a public house or an item in a store, the ticket that will bring back as false is the same one he gave?. Do not forget that in times of crisis worsens the picaresque and many businesses may try to “drop” a counterfeit that by mistake he has cast another client.
What to do in these cases? Because consumers can not go all day on the street with a detector of counterfeit notes in his pocket to check before handing over money to the clerk or waiter, the authenticity of the ticket or to identify the truth or falsity of tickets they delivered on their purchases or expenses.
