Two New York lawmakers say that a coin being marketed as a "tribute" to 9-11 is a scam and an "all-time low" for the for-profit private company making the coins.

Senator Charles Schumer and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler have complained to both the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Mint about the coins, which show a skyline featuring the Twin Towers and a Navy ship.
