Artur Virg?lio Alves Reis(Lisbon, 8 September 1896 ? 9 July 1955) was a Portuguese criminal who perpetrated one of the largest frauds in history, against the Bank of Portugal in 1925, often called the Portuguese Bank Note Crisis.

Alves dos Reis was a notorious Portuguese scammer in the early 20th century.

Dos Reis successfully counterfeited large amounts of currency, destabilizing the Portuguese economy and causing a widespread financial panic. Posing as a wealthy businessman, he leveraged fake financial instruments to swindle banks and investors. The scheme ultimately led to his arrest in 1925. Dos Reis' exploits serve as a cautionary tale about the far-reaching consequences of financial fraud and the need for robust regulatory measures to safeguard economies from such deceptive practices..
