KOREAN CON: Cheated locals still not repaid

KOREAN CON
Thirteen people from Kampong Cham province who were duped into paying thousands of dollars for the chance to work in Korea last month have yet to receive their money back, according to Bun Kuntha, deputy governor of Kampong Cham's Chamkar Leu district. The 13 lost US$15,500 in total after they paid a woman who promised to find them work abroad but then absconded with their money. About a dozen other people from the original group got their money back when the perpetrator was detained in Phnom Penh, but she has since been released.
