9 Israelis suspected of scamming millions from U.S. pensioners By Yuval Goren, Haaretz CorrespondentBetween the Madoff's, the Boesky's, the Milliken's and the gang at the Federal Reserve, these thieves and con artists are going to steal everything that isn't nailed down, then come back with a crowbar.
The Tel Aviv police fraud squad arrested on Sunday nine Israelis on suspicion of netting millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called Nigerian scam.
Police raided an office in the city, which is suspected to have been the nerve center of the dodgy enterprise. The defendants, all in their 20s and 30s, allegedly phoned American pensioners, told them they had won the lottery and asked them for a fee of several thousand dollars for the transfer of the prize money, which in fact never existed.
The investigation has been conducted in conjunction with U.S. law enforcement agencies.
Last week, it was reported that the American agencies had urged Israel Police to step up the extradition procedure of another ten Israelis who were suspected of scamming $2 million in similar means.
Will America ever wake up and realize that a giant Star of David shaped tick has sunk its fangs into our jugular vein or will we keep stumbling about until we collapse from feeding that parasite?
