Real brass, fake gold get alleged scammers jailed

If you can’t make it, fake it – that’s the mentality that landed two women in cuffs on Tuesday. The women allegedly pawned earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings – all of them fakes – to a jewellery seller in Kandal’s Koh Thom district, police said.
