"I was duped into drug smuggling." : another thick Kiwi.

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

"I was duped into drug smuggling." : another thick Kiwi.

The story of the Kiwi and the Nigerian.
Another Kiwi with a low IQ, but I think we can laugh at this one, since he was acquitted. :plus1:
It starts off like this:
In the late 1990s, Mr Miranda received the first of many emails that said a relative in Africa had left him $2 million. Born in India, he wasn't sure if he had any family there but responded anyway. For the inheritance to be released, he was asked to send between $100 and $200, which he did.
Summary:
How it unfolded

• Over a period of 13 years, Trevor Miranda gave $100,000 to various email requests for financial help from African nations.

• One man in regular contact was Daniel Tucker, who purported to work for the United Nations in Nigeria.

• He told Mr Miranda there was US$8.5 million in Papua New Guinea to repay him. The balance could be spent on building an orphanage in New Zealand.

• Tucker gave him $972 for a return flight from Auckland to Port Moresby in November 2013.

• On arrival, Mr Miranda was put up in a hotel, given money for his expenses and a laptop. But he was told the money was now in New Zealand.

• Tucker convinced him to carry two pieces of luggage back to New Zealand. Hidden inside was 1.5kg of methamphetamine.

• Mr Miranda declared these bags at Auckland International Airport and the drugs were discovered. He co-operated with Customs and the police to track down those who had used him.

• He was charged with importing a Class A drug and possession for supply, which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

• He was acquitted on both counts after an 11-week trial.
Full story here. Amazing that he is capable of feeding himself without assistance. :fool:
