Two Turkish swindlers found themselves under a police investigation on Tuesday after they quarrelled and had a car crash while trying to cheat each other, Anatolia news agency reported.
The police arrested one of the men and launched a pursuit for the second who ran away after their car crashed in the western province of Manisa, the report said.
Unaware that they were both conmen, the two met for a gold deal: One arrived with a bag full of counterfeit gold coins, while the other carried bundles of forged banknotes.
“We started to argue when I realised that the coins were fake. And then I crashed the car while quarrelling,” the detained man, identified only as SB, was quoted as telling the police. — Sapa-AFP
