They've got nothing on the Ugandas.
"Scammers have targeted a town on the Uganda-Kenya border with an elaborate fraud - setting up a fake bank and taking deposits, before fleeing.
The bank opened an office in Malaba town, advertised on radio and took $100,000 in deposits over two months.
But when investors turned up to reclaim their money, all they found was a note saying: "Sorry the bank operations have been moved to a new place."
This is the very definition of evil genius.
If you wanted to con someone out of their life savings (preferably someone elderly or so poor that they may very well die of starvation as a result), how would you do it?
