Spanish term or phrase: frase: haciéndolos cholitos con su presea de barro
Discúlpenme que haya puesto toda la frase pero no se trataba de saber aisladamente el sentido de los vocablos que pudieran presentar algún problema (cholo - mestizo, cholito - niño, o presea - joya) sino más bien en la frase completa, tal como aparecen en la transcripción de abajo:
"Pareciera que no les fue muy rentable la estafa en Panama, pues ahora anuncian un premio para estafar a los peruanos haciéndolos cholitos con su presea de barro premio Quality Perú 2008, el cual pretenden hacer creer que tiene el valioso respaldo de una organización de prestigio que ellos mismos han inventado y la cual no representa a nadie."

Explanation:
I believe this is it.

Cholo - In Peru: peasant or indian, in a somewhat degrading way because it implies being simple minded. Can also be used affectionately between friends. In Peru it has no 'gangster' connotation.
friends: Que tal cholo! / Habla cholo!
insult: Mira el cholo bloqueando la calle con su burro! (Urban Dictionary)

Presea - (Cuba) Medalla que se otorga al ganador de una competición; alhaja, joya, tela, etc., preciosas (Real Academia Española website)

Medalha de cortiça - A prize that has no real value.
