Massive Polish Fraud with Dutch License Plates

Polish traders have produced fake Dutch license plates, which they have put on cars in Poland, in order to raise their price.  The Telegraaf daily has more than a thousand pictures where the fraudulent plates can be seen.  These cars are sold with registration papers.  A Polish economist living in the Netherlands discovered the swindle in 2004.  He has not been able to convince either the Dutch or the Polish authorities to do anything about it despite trying to do so for the past ten years.  The Dutch authorities say that if it happens in Poland, it is not their business, and the Polish police say that the falsification of license plates is not considered to be a crime in Poland.
