Not quite sure if this is news or scam or both but I'd never heard of this one before.

‘Black dollar scam’ swindlers nabbed by PNP

Three foreigners who were tagged as the leader and members of the notorious Angolan Budol-Budol Gang operating the “black dollar scam” in southern Metro Manila were apprehended by the police in Pasay City, the Philippine National Police (PNP) disclosed today.

PNP chief Director General Oscar Albayalde identified the suspected swindlers as Gum Blanche Murphy, 28, from Angola; and Aroon James, 44, from Puerto Rico; and Brown Akwe Fonboh, 43, from United States of America. All three suspects were temporarily residing in a hotel on Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City.

The black money scam, sometimes also known as the "black dollar scam" or "wash wash scam", is a scam where con artists attempt to fraudulently obtain money from a victim by persuading him or her that piles of banknote-sized paper in a trunk or a safe are actually currency notes that have been dyed to avoid detection by authorities. The victim is persuaded to pay fees and purchase chemicals to remove the dye, with the promise of a share in the proceeds.

Can this currency note be use for toilet paper?  I wonder what is the world wide ratio between scammers and foolish victims?  One for one hundred?  

In my opinion......in order to be a successful scammer, one could immediately recognize that being a well connected politician or government official does have its perks.  It's all over the news -- from the investigative reports coming from Washington DC.....he, he.

I'd go a step further and say greedy and gullible.
