Two citizens of Cameroon have been arrested for selling "magic potions" to credulous Muscovites.
The “magicians” promised their clients that the potion could triple their money, and offered them a demonstration.
After covering the money in a mix of baby powder, iodine and Coca Cola – the "magic potion" – they secretly swapped it with three times as much cash.
Convinced betters returned with larger sums of money, which the fraudsters took and vanished.
The money-magicians claimed they were just playing a traditional Cameroon joke on their victims, but police have not fallen under that spell.
