Counterfeit bills used to pay for gold coins
Police say a coin collector used fake cash to buy coins worth thousands of dollars. Lincoln police Captain Chris Peterson says the victim posted an ad on Craigslist for three one ounce Kuerrand coins for $4500.
The victim met the man who responded in the Haymarket Sunday afternoon. Police say they exchanged 45 one–hundred dollar bills and the coins. The victim did not realize the bills were fake until he got home.
