Passers-by believed for a few seconds that they were going to pick up the jackpot in a street in Overpelt, in Flanders. According to information from Belang van Limburg, they saw a huge amount of banknotes lying around in the street and jumped on them to pick them up.
They even started running to try to get as many as possible, before realizing… that they were counterfeit notes.
Some passers-by who got tricked turned themselves in to the police with the counterfeit notes. The police could only see that it was indeed counterfeit money, of very poor quality.
