Gold bars stamped with fake logos of major refineries have been circulated into the global market and landed in the vaults of JPMorgan Chase & Co. — part of a plot to launder smuggled or illegal specimens of the precious metal, according to a report.
Bars worth at least $50 million stamped with the logos of Swiss refineries that did not produce them have been identified by all four of the country’s top gold refiners in the last three years, Reuters reported.
As you know, gentle reader, my novel John Donnelly’s Gold includes the manufacture of a fake gold bar.
What, you didn’t know that? Gentle reader, you should buy the book that is rated at least 4 stars on various forums.
