fake gold bars filled with tungsten! SCAM ALERT

NY1 Exclusive: Diamond District Businessman Tricked Into Paying $100K For Fake Gold Bars. So if you are in the market for gold beware! Fake gold bars are out there.

The shell peels off like foil on a chocolate bar.
Gold and tungsten have almost the exact same density, so a substitution of metals would be difficult to detect. Fadl bought four of the bars, exchanging them for smaller gold bars, because the customer would not take cash.
Fadl said a colleague tipped him off about the scam, prompting him to drill holes in the bars and test the contents.
"Buyers should be aware they should not buy gold bars from any private individual whom they don't know," said Nessim.
