Those who may have been scammed in India may take heart from the following news item.

Quote:
A father and son team of alleged conmen, who claimed to work for Nasa, have been paraded in front of cameras by Indian police, wearing “space suits” apparently made from tinfoil.
Quote:
The duo persuaded the victim of the scam to invest in a copper plate for 14.3m Rs (£157,600), which they claimed had "special properties“, police said.
Quote:
The suspects, Virender Mohan Brar and his son Nitin Mohan Brar, had allegedly claimed they wanted to test the device, a “rare piece of copper plate struck by a thunderbolt" which had given it the power to pull rice towards it.

They had allegedly told the Delhi-based businessman, named only as Narender, that if tests were successful, they would then sell the device to Nasa for $5bn.

Those space suits look like something gay beekeepers might have worn to a seventies disco party (Not that there's anything wrong with that).
The idea that seeing the world means going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

I notice the sign behind reads Inter-Border Gangs! These two may only be the tip of the ice berg, or luna(tic) module, as it were.

What's funnier is that the "duo persuaded the victim of the scam to invest in a copper plate for 14.3m Rs." But hey, people voted for Trump so......
