Liberian Black Money Ring Scam Busted in America

A ring of Liberian criminals from Philadelphia in the United States were busted on Novemeber 18, 2010 for allegedly engaging in a black money scam to rob a Philadelphia business owner $100,000.00, allegedly smuggled out Africa and covered in black ink.

They told the business owner they had $100,000.00 that they needed to wash it but needed only $50,000.00 in exchange for the $100,000.00. They took out hundred dollars bill black money and wash it in front of the business owner which came up clean to convince the business owner the deal was genuine.

 

The five Liberians immigrants were busted by authorities during a sting in Southwest Philadelphia. The security authorities are also investigating two other separate crimes  in Northwest Philadelphia  with one believed to be linked to the Nov. 18 bust. Police say this is not the first time they have heard such con scam.

The security authorities believe there could be more groups like the one they nabbed out there, Lt. Joh Walker told the press  of  the Southwest detectives who worked along with Secret Service officials to make the arrest to the press. The arrest was made at a business in the 7500 block of Haverford Ave. in Philadelphia.
