Drug dealer calls cops after getting bogus bills

A near-sighted drug pusher who realized too late he had been scammed with bogus currency while making a deal reported it to police.

The suspect, surnamed Huang, is in custody after he filed a complaint with Wuhan police officers saying his buyer had given him hell notes - or ceremonial currency burned in offerings for the dead.

Huang said he wanted to turn in his regular customer, surnamed Fang, and expressed hope of getting the 60,000 yuan ($9,068) he was owed, media reported Tuesday.

It turned out that Fang had been arrested in August on drug charges along with three other suspects during a highway stop in Anhui Province. 

Fang later told police he had gave Huang the hell notes, banking on his poor eyesight.
