    I have never trusted gold bars sealed cardboard and plastic.

    Yeah, that was a security feature for about three weeks, until the bastiges figgered out how to counterfeit the cards as well.
    Working at ANACS and in coin shops I got very good at feeling the “heft” of a gold item. Once caught a 50 Peso that was only 18kt instead of.900, then proved it with a specific gravity test. Can’t do that in a card.

  • I'm pretty impressed with this criminal's hustle.

    The substantial truth doctrine is an important defense in defamation law that allows individuals to avoid liability if the gist of their statement was true.
