Ye olde CC on the ends trick, culls in the middle. "There's a sucker born every minute." PT Barnum.

Its just paper holding 10-20 coins together, You don't want to see what's inside before you buy ? If they were honest they would unwrap the coins and show them to you.

I really can't believe people fall for these tricks in 2021.

PT Barnum didn't say that, but I agree with the rest.

"There's a sucker born every minute" is a phrase closely associated with P. T. Barnum, an American showman of the mid-19th century, although there is no evidence that he actually said it. Early examples of its use are found among gamblers and confidence tricksters.

Barnum's biographer Arthur H. Saxon tried to track down when Barnum had uttered this phrase but was unable to verify it. According to Saxon, "There's no contemporary account of it, or even any suggestion that the word 'sucker' was used in the derogatory sense in his day. Barnum was just not the type to disparage his patrons."
