    Coin collector reports $27K stolen following bogus deal

    A Hastings man on Tuesday reported the theft of $27,000 following what was supposed to be a transaction with a gold coin dealer that Lincoln police had warned him not to go through with.

    On Tuesday at 2 p.m., the man, 68, arrived at a west Lincoln bar parking lot, where he planned to meet someone with whom he'd spoken on the phone.

    The Hastings man told police he had agreed to meet a man named Sean -- whom he dealt with in person recently at a coin show in Kearney -- and buy 19 1-ounce gold coins for $27,000.

    Re: Coin collector reports $27K stolen following bogus deal

    If I ever replied to a craigslist ad to buy some coins you better believe I would be coming in packing some heat or not at all. Unless it is a sweet little old lady I usually set up my meetings at a bank or mall. I prefer the bank, since if I am low on $$$ I can just walk over to the teller and get some more. There are some real lowlifes out there you have to watch out for.
    LMAO
