Business lesson: Don’t do it with a stranger

A woman in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district was allegedly cheated out of $100 by a scam artist who had presented himself as a potential business partner.

Police said the suspect called the woman and asked to meet her at a coffee shop, where he suggested they go into business together.

The man said he needed $100 to process some paperwork, took the cash and, needless to say, never returned.

Police said the woman, who did not previously know the man or his “business”, probably should have exercised better judgment.
