A cleaning machine in a cambodian household, that's really suspicious.

The article doesn't make it clear whether the speaker was being shipped and was being collected at the destination, and by whom. But, dollars to donuts, the women were being used as the mugs told to collect and deliver the speaker with his nibs keeping a safe distance.

I hope they give him 30 years...

In Europe if you are dealing while African (or you want to impress dumb chicks) footballer is a good lie.
Here it's a dumb lie. There are no football teams here that can afford to pay for foreign players.
A much better lie would be quality control at a textile factory or something like that.

The local football teams here have been hiring African players for a long time. Check out the team photos of Phnom Penh Crown, Nagaworl FC, Svay Rieng FC, Takeo FC etc and you might notice this.
