But for that read the article again.
It clearly is a remarkable tale, but after the "bonds" were seized by the Italian finance police, the men, after some questioning, were let go, sparking a frenzy of conspiracy theories on the internet.

I was talking in terms of American or comparable money. Guess I should have made that clear... I'm pretty sure Zimbabwe also has 100 TRILLION dollar notes...lol

Turns out though that those bonds with the Japanese men were fake. Question is... what were they going to do with them anyways?
