In Brief: No cash back for korean con victims

Nine people from Kampong Cham province's Chamkar Leu district who were swindled in July by con men promising them jobs in Korea have yet to receive their money back, district residents said. Twenty-six people from Chamkar Leu reported paying thousands of dollars to brokers who promised them the opportunity to live and work abroad in exchange for a fee. After discovering the brokers had cheated them, the residents filed a complaint with the help of Legal Support for Women and Children (LSWC), an anti-trafficking group. One victim, 34-year-old Tat Buntha, said he desperately needed the US$700 he had lost. "I will have to sell my land if I can't get my money back," he said.
