The Reel Life: Fake Uncle Pennybags edition

14 June 2016

A gang of con men in England has been convicted of using Monopoly money to swindle high-end jewelers out of nearly £7 million.

Considering there's only $15,140 worth of fake money in a standard game of Monopoly, they must have plundered a lot of Monopoly sets.

In the scam, the gang members would buy gems with bundles of real money. After the cash had gone through the cash-counting machine, the con men would swap it out with bundles of the toy currency sandwiched between a few real euros while the jeweler was distracted with putting the machine away.

The Reel Life must smugly point out that this scam would never have worked in the United States, because our money is too boring.

According to The Guardian, a judge has ordered the con men to go directly to jail. There have been no reports about whether they are allowed to pass "Go" or collect $200.
