They have rung round again victims. But already under the pretext of inspectors of militia. Swindlers declared to pensioners that all villains are caught, and   the city authorities are ready   to indemnify to the robed Muscovites a loss at a rate of 100 000 roubles. But for this purpose it is necessary for victims in advance   to return 18 percent of the profit tax, it is necessary to list money on a special bill. It was the second series of a scale deceit

When money has been collected, swindlers have passed to the next stage of swindle, having switched to veterans.
