Is this Australia's dumbest but craftiest criminal?

A man has been roasted by police after his attempt at fake license plates went horribly wrong.

From a far distance, you could be forgiven for thinking the plates might be legitimate.

But on closer inspection, this job has been botched to oblivion.

Not only are the plates wonky, but there is a glaring spelling error.

The man, who police labelled a "criminal mastermind...not quite", could not quite figure out how to spell education.

Victoria is now the "EDGUCATION STATE".

Werribee Police pulled up the Holden Commodore last Friday, immediately noticing something was amiss.

"We gave him an 8/10 for his colouring in skills, a 2/10 for his spelling ability and an additional charge for court. #backtoschool #backtocourt," Wyndham Police Service Area wrote on Facebook.

The post on Facebook has proved to be a viral hit since being shared last night, racking up more than 22,000 likes and almost 9000 shares.

Online commenters joined in on the fun, with one man saying the "plate really sums up the state of our education system".

Ross Davies wrote "I see he got the finest Edgucation available".
