    I usually get my euros from the Post Office but after reading this story (link), I'm not sure what to do.

    How can I check that my currency is authentic?

    There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those that don't.

    Post Office and Travel Agent foreign currency counters (see BBC news link above) probably have a higher chance of NOT being secure than UK banks or foreign ATMs, so I would suggest using those.

    I am sceptical aboiut the allegations made by those people in the story though.
