Con Artist of Sunflower Seeds?

Sunflower seed con artists arrested in Odesa
Three con artists in Odesa oblast have been arrested after paying a farmer 100,000 hryvnia in counterfeit bills.
The three men presented themselves to the farmer as representatives of a Kyiv wholesaler. They paid him the fake hryvnia for 80,000 tons of sunflower seeds. The boxes of bills contained some real hryvnia atop the stacks, the rest were reproduced on a laser printer. The shysters ordered a second shipment of sunflower seeds from the farmer before they were caught.
