    Amongst the amateur actors who were recruited for the filming of The Rumor of the World, a man in Lebanon, named Fidel seems to perfectly know the scam that he must memorize. Fidel explains that he was a scammer in Nigeria in the past, before arriving in Lebanon. In a short video, he accepts to speak about the different steps the scammers go through to hook their victim. From the way of speaking to the accessories (a Rolex watch or Armani shoes for example) and the chosen locations, everything is staged, almost like a film in the making.

    ai???Scams are another kind of movie that you cannot really explain. It’s a never-ending story. In these scams, you have to convince someone you’ve not seen, someone you don’t know, someone that you might not even see, but will pay you a lot of money. It’s a magical movie,ai??? Fidel tells us.
