Precious metal vendor found loss to be too dear

All that glitters is not gold, or at least that was the lesson learned by a jewellery vendor in Takeo’s Donkeo district.

Last week, four people visited the vendor’s market stall to exchange more than $4,500 worth of gold and $1,900 worth of platinum.

After handing over their bling, the purported customers picked out new pieces from the vendor, who also gave them an extra $1,500 to cover the difference in the pieces’ value.

Only too late did the vendor realise that the metals were fakes. Luckily, however, the seller spotted one of the four suspects on Sunday and alerted authorities, who swooped in to pick up the fool’s gold fraudster.
