An article from Lincoln, Nebraska shows how some crooks can't be bothered to make realistic counterfeits.
Lincoln police say they've arrested a woman who tried to trick a coin dealer into buying so-called gold coins.
Police say the dealer met Stacey Sellner in April at a convenience store under the premise of buying gold coins. Authorities say Sellner sprayed the dealer in the face with pepper spray. The dealer pushed Sellner out of his car, and she took off.
Officer Katie Flood says police found two gold coins in the parking lot - they were chocolate wrapped in gold foil.
