Are they not so foolish being duped by a stranger acting as the policemen? Earning by cheating people and blackmailing will not last for long. He has to be prepared to sit behind the bars.

The life lead by your hard earned money is always respectful and safe. But our greed to become very rich overnight brings us Jail Bhagya.
