Newark, New Jersey has fallen for one of the biggest scams in history after signing a “sister city” agreement with a fake nation, the “Hindu nation of Kailasa”.
The city’s mayor attended an official ceremony, only to find out that the nation doesn’t actually exist and the man behind it is a notorious scam artist wanted for serial rape in India.
The entire city council reportedly failed to Google the nation or its founder, who has diplomatic immunity.
Several other cities have also been scammed by the same person.
The co-hosts of “The Five” discussed the incident, wondering why Newark would want to become a sister city with a fake nation and speculating that money may have been involved.
Despite the embarrassment, the co-hosts expressed their love for Newark, New Jersey.
