A resident of Obninsk city, Russia, fell prey to unusual con men. The man bought two souvenir coins with the sign of Bitcoin for 1000 rubles (approximately $17.3). On top of that, he bough it from some "smart-looking" gypsies on the street.

Thus, the gypsies, more than half of Russians have a negative experience with, assured the man that the Bitcoin price is constantly growing and the coins will be cost up to several thousand rubles by November.
Surely, the coins turned out to be a fake and impossible to sell.
