Collected money for a while then disappeared with $100k in deposits.

Scammers have targeted a town on the Uganda-Kenya border with an elaborate fraud - setting up a fake bank and taking deposits, before fleeing.

The bank opened an office in Malaba town, advertised on radio and took $100,000 in deposits over two months.


I suppose it is the sort of thing you can only do once though. Who's going to trust a new bank after this?
