The number is scary. 
About 262,000 counterfeit euro banknotes were withdrawn from circulation in the second half of 2018.

Compared to past years, evidence shows that counterfeit notes have fallen by almost 25%, but thousands are circulating and can put anyone who does not pay attention to trouble. 
According to the figures, the percentage of counterfeits is very small compared to genuine banknotes and so the chances of finding someone with a counterfeit in their hands are small, but the risk remains. 
Banknotes of 20 and 50 euro continued to record the highest counterfeit rates. 
80% of the counterfeit notes are 20 and 50 euro. It is good that people pay particular attention to these two notes.
