According to RTE news report, fake EUR200 maybe circulating, um, not that most people are going around with EUR200 notes in their pockets! Although that reminds me of my lecturer's story about a guy who bought his own driving school a few years back for something like EUR10K in cash, paid in some car park. Turns out the "owner" of the car who sold it to the guy did not even own the car, and it was repossessed, so all he was left was the sign on top of the car. Oh, did I mention, there was no business premises attached to that driving school. So, paying that amount in cash, you have to be really sure when you part with it, or when you receive it... or both.
