Pawning a Counterfeit Machine . . . Anything for Fame

100 Dollar Bills
What’s a TV spot worth to you?
Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. In the world of stupid criminals, this guy is in a class all by himself. Not only does he try to pawn his counterfeiting machine, he asks to be on television while he does it.  Yes, according to Click On Detroit,

Kenny “Boom” Smith was busted by the U.S. Secret Service for making and passing counterfeit money. Smith must have thought his funny money skills are pretty good because he attempted to sell both his counterfeit cash and his counterfeiting machine to a pawn shop. Not just any pawn shop, either.

American Jewelry and Loan is where the hit TV show “Hardcore Pawn” is shot.

Smith allegedly chose the shop specifically because he wanted to be on the show; indeed, he signed a waiver in order to be on television.
