Had a new one today - approached by a chap who claims to have become a Muslim and associated with some extremists. He has now seen the light and left, but owes £150 and is being threatened with violence if he doesn't cough up today! Wants a loan not a gift, and produced passport to prove his ID.
Ever so plausible but feels like a scam. Anyone heard of this before? Any offers?
