Bungling counterfeit gang tried to fake £500,000 note

A gang of counterfeiters tried to con the Bank of England out of £28bn by claiming to have a collection of £1,000 and £500,000 notes, a court heard yesterday.

However, the ‘audacious’ plot was foiled by the fact that the £1,000 notes had not been legal tender for more than 60 years and the £500,000 version never existed.
