The brother and nephew of the outgoing UN Secretary-General thought they were bribing a Middle Eastern official to buy a Hanoi-based skyscraper – but they wound up getting duped by a New York fraudster who ran off with their bribe cash, Manhattan feds said Tuesday.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s brother Ban Ki Sang and nephew Joo Hyun “Dennis” Bahn unwittingly gave $500,000 to the huckster, Malcolm Harris, who pretended to have ties to the powerful unnamed official, the indictment says.
