It pays to read the whole article sometimes

Reading an article on a couple arrested for being in possession of fake euro notes in Cyprus, the statement

Miss Wilson, a teacher, told today how the couple had no idea the notes – which had been obtained by Mr Redden’s grandmother for them from a post office – were fakes.

So, the Post Office handed out the notes then. Well, no.

The gran in question was queuing in a Post Office but was approached by a smartly dressed couple with a wad of euros, saying that they were waiting to transfer their euros back to pounds after their holiday and would she like to save time and commission by taking them from them,

So nothing to do with the Post Office, really, except that it was the building they were in when the dubious transaction took place. A bit misleading, that’s all…..original article….
