banknote counterfeiting up to 17%?, you are lyning to me

Yesterday, I got a spam message from a know company of mine. Trying to sell some banknote counterfeiting detector.
The funny think was that they told us that the European Bank estimates the banknote counterfeiting up to 17%. Obiusly, we should buy their product to protect ourselves.
I thought 17%, that is a lot!, So I did a quick search and I found out the
Biannual information on euro banknote counterfeiting, if there are 10.4 billion bank notes, and only 300 000 are counterfeits then it is 0,03%
say That there are 10 million counterfeit banknotes, still 0,1% which it is way too far away from the 17% that the commercial spammer try to sell us.
