A group of swindlers organized a fake currency exchange shop in Moscow, which helped them steal more than $100,000 from a 25-year-old Muscovite, an employee of a commercial firm.
The victim of the money fraud, who has recently filed a police report, said that he found the shop on the Internet and became very interested in a very attractive currency exchange rate. When the young man arrived to the address of the exchange shop, an unidentified man introduced himself as an employee of the shop, took $103.7 thousand from the client and disappeared. As it turned out later, there was no currency exchange shop in the building at all.
An explosion of household gas occurred in a nine-storeyed apartment building in the city of Shakhty, the Rostov region of Russia. The blast destroyed two storeys of the building
