swapped the bags and the victims were told not to open them for seven days or the bad fortune would bedevil them.

To believe that, one gotto have a bad case of Alzheimer. The scammers went for the weakest, really ugly, hope they get a long long prison sentence.

After witnessing the outcome of the recent elections, and the reaction of the population, there is no shortage of gullible people nationwide, the scammers will be in their element!

I cannot find it within myself to feel any sympathy for people stupid enough to believe that clear and obvious crap. I wouldn't be surprised if every one of those folks who got conned is walking around with a smart phone. You know, a world of knowledge at your fingertips and all.......

You cannot cure stupidity

Preying on elderly peoples superstitions is deplorable.

I hope they are handed back to China after a long prison sentence

I suggest you look deeper within yourself.. Old and Lonely people can be easily scammed as is unfortunately happening in all rich and poor countries.

How many people calling the victims "stupid" and "gullible" themselves believe that they can communicate telepathically with a 2,000 year old Jewish zombie?

Or that even if they don't believe that, they believe one must respect the religious beliefs of others and not mock or criticize?

 

If one has that or other equally ridiculous magical beliefs of one's religion, it's not much of a leap for many people to believe in other superstitious beliefs which in turn make them easy victims.

Sometimes you just have to be smart enough to avoid obvious scams. But...once these people are caught they need to be publicly punished by paying a price that would discourage any others from following suit. Unfortunately most of these jokers think they are smarter than anyone else and don't think they will ever be caught.

One can respect others right to hold beliefs differing from our own, that includes those who get scammed through superstition and fear
