Coles customers are being warned over a new scam targeting people collecting the rare Stikeez figurines.
The golden bananas are in such high demand that they are fetching more than $20,000 online.
Adelaide resident George Aslandis claims he is one of the lucky shoppers to find the golden bananas at a store in Greenacre, but not everyone is convinced, shares Yahoo news.
“It looks like someone’s spray-painted that one,” one astute Coles shopper said.
“It’s not totally gold, it’s like a bronze colour,” another commented.
The determination to score the golden banana has led to fraudulent figurines being sold to unsuspecting collectors for huge price tags.
Coles has urged shoppers to be diligent when purchasing Stikeez online, saying that every real golden banana comes with a certificate of authenticity.
