$100M in Fake Bonds Seized

WARSAW — Eight people are to be questioned on counterfeiting charges Monday, after they were found with $100 million in fake U.S. treasury bonds in their possession, Polish authorities say.

The Central Anti-Corruption Bureau said the suspects — two Ukrainians, a Moldovan woman, three Poles and two Italians — were arrested Sunday afternoon around Krakow and Lublin.

A spokesman for the bureau said the value of the fake bonds was a record seizure for the bureau.
