'Curse' scam targets Asian women in New Zealand

Help

Police say a gang of female criminals in Auckland, New Zealand has been scamming elderly Asian women they meet on the street by convincing them that their money and jewellery is cursed.

The gang offers to bless the women's possessions if they place them in a bag - but in fact they swap the bags and make away with the contents.
