Three men arrested in India for Red Mercury scam

According to a story in the Hindu, three men approached undercover Indian police and tried to sell them Red Mercury supposedly obtained from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) sources in Sri Lanka.  The conmen claimed to have some eight pounds of the stuff to sell and demanded the equivalent of US $2.2 million for the whole lot.

The link to LTTE is a new one to me, but the truth remains: Red Mercury does not exist and anyone trying to sell it is running a con.
