UAE police hold man who sold $1 million bills

United Arab Emirates police were holding a man for attempting to pass off two souvenir one million dollar notes as real currency. “The suspect claimed that he was not aware that the notes do not have any value,” Colonel Hammad Ahmed al-Hamadi of the Abu Dhabi police said.  The 44-year-old suspect persuaded the woman to exchange the fake notes at the UAE central bank in return for 30 per cent of their value after convincing her they were authentic. A photo in the newspaper shows a bill with starkly different colours on its two sides – one side is mainly black and white, while the other is mainly green.  The black and white side features a picture of the first US president, George Washington, whose image is found on US one dollar bills.  The man who was arrested by Abu Dhabi police is from the Ivory Coast but there was no indication of the woman’s nationality.
