If someone offers to sell you e-kronor, beware, because the Swedish Central Bank hasn't started issuing them yet. In fact, the bank is still deciding whether or not to issue the digital currency at all.

Radio Sweden talks to Hanna Armelius, who works as a senior advisor with the e-kronor project at the bank, about how they've learned about the scams and what to do if you come across one.
