Investigators say con artists convince victims to pay for chemicals to wash bank note-sized paper they claim to be real currency dyed black to avoid detection by customs officials. Except for a few genuine currency bills used to trap victims, the black money is usually construction paper. R.I. State Police Captain James Demers is seen at left. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)

As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, the number of people indicted and convicted by the U.S. for bribery, theft and other reconstruction-related crimes in both countries is rapidly rising, according to two government reports released Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011. "This is a boom industry for us," Bowen said in an interview. (AP Photo/Kevin Wolf, File)

    Activists from India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hold torches during a protest against corruption in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad June 8, 2011. Protests on issues ranging from corruption to high food or fuel prices have mushroomed, though so far India has avoided the kind of social unrest sweeping the Middle East and North Africa. Anger over corruption has spiralled as the government lurches from scandal to scandal, including a telecom licensing kickback scam that may have cost the exchequer up to $39 billion. The placard reads: "Bring back black money from abroad". REUTERS/Krishnendu Halder (INDIA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST IMAGES OF THE DAY BUSINESS)

    Supporters of All India Anna Dravida Munetra Khazhgam (AIADMK) celebrate state election victory in front of their leader J. Jayalalithaa's residence in the southern Indian city of Chennai May 13, 2011. India's beleaguered ruling coalition won some respite after a key ally overturned three decades of communist rule in West Bengal's state election on Friday, but it suffered a huge loss in another poll as graft scandals hit government support. In Tamil Nadu, the regional DMK party and ruling Congress party ally were decimated. The party was linked to a $39 billion telecoms scam that paralysed Singh's government and hit foreign investment in Asia's third-largest economy.
