Most often these unearthing is only meant to punish some intermediate entity managed by Asian. The story again repeats with the new entity. No one wants to investigate the root cause and take serious steps to prevent such scams. The article itself gave too little info to understand any credible stuff.

Almost all new comers to Kuwait have entered using ''scam'' technique. Pay offs are traditional in this country. These ''unearthing'' dramas are cheap publicity stunts...
