Fake 2012 Olympic commemorative bills are available on the internet in China despite the fact that Britain did not issue any commemorative bills for the London Games. Sellers of the bills spread fake information and news to deceive buyers, reports China’s state news agency Xinhua.

“I found there was something wrong with the bills when I got them. The Olympic logos on the bills look like they were marked by a stamp, not printed on the bills,” said a customer surnamed Liang, who paid 1,300 yuan (US$200) for two sets of the bills from a coin collection website. “I then sent the bills to a company for examination and found they are indeed fake,” Liang said.
