pete1729: But what exactly did he buy/steal and for how much?

If it's Krugerrands and $44,000 that's one crime, If it was Those comicly large cast resin coins you see offered as home decor at coin shows and 75 bucks it's another crime altogether

TOSViolation: Shouldn't the minimum bail in a case of theft/fraud be the value of the item(s) stolen?

"Ha! These dumb dealers think I'm paying them, when really all I'm giving them is worthless pieces of paper! With my full name. And address. And bank account number."

That being said, I still can't quite figure out why dealers at coin shows are willing to take personal checks. Or, for that matter, why they're willing to let go of so much "real money" (gold and silver) in exchange for mere worthless fiat greenbacks whose value is sure to "return to zero".
