TWO Liberians accused of trying to swindle an undercover policeman out of US$5,000 (HK$38,700) as part of a 'black money' scam appeared at Eastern Court yesterday. James Menior, 24, and Richard Mason, 34, are accused of pretending to have US$2 million in defaced bank notes, and asking the undercover officer for US$5,000 to buy cleaning chemicals. The officer was falsely promised a share of the US$2 million once it was clean, the court heard. Menior and Mason, who arrived on tourist visas, are alleged to have carried out the scam between last Tuesday and Thursday. Magistrate David Dufton was told police were having difficulty organising an identity parade. He remanded the pair in custody until this Thursday. No pleas were taken.
