Back in the late 90's some Nigerian "Princes" landed at Sheremetyevo-2 (Moscow) to meet some local businessman, whom they then persuaded to hand over hundreds of thousands of dollars in a suitcase in exchange for some "mineral rights".

Said Nigerians then hopped on a plane back home and nothing was ever heard from them since (how they managed to get the cash out is unknown but the country was almost lawless back then), the "mineral rights" documents were worthless. It was also reported that they were dressed in flowing colourful robes (of the kind seen in Eddie Murphy's Coming to America)... which sure impressed the (naive back then in the ways of the world) Russian businessman....

Personally wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry, at the time the whole episode struck me as odd, but Moscow was a lot odder so just another day.
