Has the borrowed moto scam always been with us? Will cave drawings in Kampot one day reveal its origins lay in a borrowed ox cart scam?
Who can understand its mysteries? Clearly not our latest victim, a young woman who, touched by her friend’s story of a sick mother in hospital, immediately offered up her motorbike as a favour.
Three days later, with no bike in sight she approached police, who found the friend/thief but no moto.
