Pursat duck farm scam quickly goes to the dogs

A plan to raise fowl turned out to be strictly for the birds on Tuesday in Pursat province. Two men, 42 and 45, feigned interest in purchasing a plot of land in Krakor district from a local villager, 52.

They told the man that they wanted to buy the land to farm ducks, and agreed to a price of $4,500. However, the con artists said they first needed to borrow the man’s bike to withdraw money from a nearby bank.

They never returned, and the landowner called police to intervene. Police later found the suspects with the bike. NOKORWAT
