Scam artist caught for lack of creativity

A repeat fraudster was nabbed by police in Battambang yesterday, after she tried to pull a currency exchange scam she’d previously been caught for.

The 30-year-old reportedly engineered an argument at a money exchange shop, claiming to have handed the cashier $20 more than she really had for conversion into riel.

But rather than falling for the con, the cashier called the cops, who quickly identified her.

Police said the woman was previously released after promising to change her ways, but will now face charges.
