money-launderingTwo well dress African men, passing themselves off as respectable entrepreneurs, have been arrested in the south of Tenerife.

They claimed they had escaped from their country of origin with large sums of money, US dollars and Euros, which had been dyed black to look like worthless paper to avoid detection.

They then explained to their victims that the money could be washed clean if they used an expensive miracle chemical which would restore the notes to their original condition.

The pair then claimed they were out of cash, out of time and they were selling the cash for one third of its value!

Several gullible people fell into this trap and found they were unable to ‘launder’ the money!
