Three Frenchmen arrested for allegedly making fake euro notes

Recommended Posts

Pattaya, Chon Buri:- Pattaya police and anti-international crime police have arrested three Frenchmen for having allegedly made and sold fake euro banknotes.


Camille Cinerlli, 30, Elie Maghames, 28, and Alexander Jean la Rocca, 31, were accused of mailing the fake banknotes to their customers in several European nations by hiding them inside Thai cartoon books.


Chon Buri Police chief Pol Maj Gen Nitipong Niamnoi and other senior police officers announced the arrest at a press conference Friday.


Nitipong said the three were arrested Thursday after the French embassy’s police attaché sought help from the Thai police.


The French embassy informed the Thai police that several parcels from Thailand that contained fake euro banknotes inserted in cartoon books were seized in France. The parcels were mailed from Pattaya.


Following the information from the embassy, the Chon Buri anti-international crime center conducted an investigation and learned that the three Frenchmen had mailed several parcels to France and other European countries. Police also seized 105 fake euro banknotes from the parcels.


Nitipong said police obtained an arrest warrant against the three from the Pattaya Provincial Court Thursday and they raided three houses where the three were staying and arrested them.


The Chon Buri police chief said police seized 28 items of devices for making the fake notes.


Nitipong said the three admitted that they have been collaborating in making and selling the fake banknotes.


He said Cinerlli and Maghames learned how to make the fake notes from Internet and had downloaded an application for preparing files for making fake 50 euro notes.


They save the files of the fake notes on flash drives and printed them with printers of la Rocca and Maghames, Nitipong said.


They sold the notes at the rate of 15 to 17 euro per note to customers in France, Spain, Austria, Ireland, Germany and Greece, causing damage about dozens of millions of baht.

I'm taking a wild guess that the customers wouldn't have seen his face, unless he hand delivered them of course.

So it would seem the EU is the only one allowed to print fake euros.

Still if these gents had used them to buy EU bonds instead of sending them in french letters books they might have got away with it.

You need at least special paper to make Euros look real.

Where did they get the paper from?

North Africans with French passports?

Didn't their parents teach them that crime doesn't pay.
