Voodoo Bank Heist

Voodoo Bank Heist: Aired on BBC World and BBC Arabic, now available on Amazon Prime
One day in August 1995, a man called Foutanga Babani Sissoko walked into the head office of the Dubai Islamic Bank and asked for a loan to buy a car. The manager agreed, and Sissoko invited him home for dinner. It was the prelude, writes the BBC's Brigitte Scheffer, to one of the most audacious confidence tricks of all time.
