It doesn't really clarify their modus operandi.

It could be the 418 scam.. Or the pretty lady romance scam complete with sick buffalo. Or the lottery prize win scam. Or the 'goods are yours' if you wing me the small transport fee. Could even be the missed call scam which is quite popular and in the news.

Either way, they get their free haircuts and rent free nice warm bunks
