Conterfeit metro fare cards

I was offered one of these about 5 days ago. I wondered what the scam was. I think on the same day I overheard some victims of the scam who had bought a card and then weren't allow to use it. I definitely heard the word "counterfeit" while they were talking within station attendants.

When's metro 2.0 coming?
