In connection with $50 million dollars in counterfeit silver certificates and $10K in fake U.S bills two men from Quebec have been arrested.
Apparently, the certificates were claimed to have been issued in 1937, however, the RCMP discovered the validity of that claim stating no such bills
ever existed in that time frame. There was also fake money totaling $2,500 found at the accountant's home.
Two Quebec men have been arrested in connection with more than $50 million US in counterfeit silver certificates and about $10,000 in fake U.S.
The RCMP officer in charge of the bust says it's hard to imagine that any financial institution would have accepted some of the fake bills.
The $1 million silver certificates were made to look authentic, and were supposed to have been issued in 1937.

It is incredible to me the risks people will willingly take in order to obtain money or get over on someone with fake money. There has been a
countless number of scams involving money in recent history and these people still will not learn they're lesson. I am willing to bet that these
people involved in these scams just got caught. They probably have been getting away with it in the past in small doses. In many cases people just
don't know their limits. If you're going to involve yourself in crime don't be stupid. But usually people who involve themselves in such things
don't take advice too well anyway.
