Scammers find perfect mark for money switch

A pair of clever conmen cheated an absent-minded money exchanger out of almost $1,800 on Sunday in Poipet.

The suspects gave the vendor 18 $100 notes in exchange for the equivalent in Khmer riel.

The dastardly duo then hesitated a moment, telling the shop owner they made a mistake. They asked to recount the US money, returning to him a stack of 18 $1 bills.

The dimwitted dollar distributer didn’t notice the swap until after the swindlers had given him the slip.
