Well, you can make stuff like this up, but who'd want to?

 "The car carrying Vice Consul of North Korea collided with a tractor on the highway near the village of Razdolnoye in southern Primorye on Saturday. A stranger rushed to assist the injured official and robbed him of $23,000. Kim In Sum, Vice Consul of N. Korean Consulate General located in Nakhodka, got into the car accident when the driver unexpectedly lost control of the consulate’s car and hit the wheel of the tractor which was moving ahead. The car overturned and the vice consul and the driver received minor injuries. An unknown man rushed to the car crash victims and suggested assistance. Later the vice consul noticed that his handbag containing $24,300 and 450 yuan was stolen, Primorye’s regional police reported Monday. The criminal case on robbery was launched. Police investigators said on Monday that they had already detained an unemployed local resident with part of the stolen money. Investigation is underway."
