A man told police he was at Sam's Club on Lee Highway when a dark-skinned black male who said he was from South Africa said he was looking for the CVS pharmacy. The man gave him a ride.
At the CVS, there was another black male who climbed into the car. They asked to be taken to another location.
While en route, they began to tell the man about a scheme to make a lot of money. The man "from South Africa" displayed a large wad of bills.
To get the money, it was necessary to invest $800 up front. The man drove to SunTrust Bank and withdrew $800.
He later dropped off the men, who took the $800 and went for the pot of cash he was to receive. They said they would be back in five minutes.
After 30 minutes had past and there was no sign of them or the quick fortune, the man called police.
