HA NOI — A man reported a theft on Tuesday to Ha Noi's Cau Giay District Police, allegedly involving two foreigners.
Vu Van Thuan from the northern city of Hai Phong told police that after helping two foreigners to identify the denomination of different notes, he found he had lost VND5 million (US$240) from his wallet.
Thuan said the foreigners had pulled over in a car and asked him to explain the difference between the notes. Thuan showed them his own wallet in an attempt to explain, but one of them dropped a note and urged him to bend down to pick it up. They returned his wallet to him and drove away, but Thuan later found the money was missing. — VNS
