At approximately6:55 p.m., a male victim is approached at Costco by a foreign accented black male who is looking for a church to donate his Kenyan mothers fortune. Our victim agrees to help and the usual scam unfolds- another ÒstrangerÓ is met and he agrees to help, showing $2K for good faith. Our victim is asked to show his good faith as well, so he drives them to his bank in San Jose and gets them $1800. They drive him to Southland Mall in Hayward where they want to get him a gift for his trouble. A $24,000 Rolex watch is selected, but the suspect has forgotten his money so the victim puts it on his credit card with the understanding that he will get the money when they return to his car. Another show of faith is required- that he drive around the parking lot one time and return to pick them up- a last test of his faith and commitment. When he completed the circuit and returns for his new found friends, they have vanished. An age old scam that sadly still works. Ofc. Hollifield investigating.

They then wanted to test it, so they headed to the empty field just south of the parking lot, where the caller saw them.
