Gardai Investigate Scam As Men Pose As Fake Film Crew

Gardai are investigating a major scam in which a large group of men from India gained entry to Ireland posing as a fake film crew

According to the Irish Daily Mail -  26 Indian men obtained work visas under false pretences to enter Ireland - but fled to the UK almost immediately.

The case is being compared to the Oscar winning film Argo where American hostages escaped Iran in a similar way.
