Here's a BI story on tungsten-filled gold bars.
#1, goodie. I'm happy to see the story making the rounds, casting the doubt on gold, so it can skyrocket to $2500 by Xmas.
#2, here's the kicker for me:
"Fadl says he bought the counterfeit from a Russian merchant who'd bought from him previously. He did not provide the merchant's name and said the man had already returned to his home country."Point being?
Don't do business with Russians!
UPDATE: Also, this story: Chinese sell tungsten-filled gold bars online.
Don't do business with Chinese either!
