Vancouver police are calling it the most bizarre scam they've ever heard of.  They're on the hunt for a man who convinces women to re-enact sex crimes for him.  The man claims to be involved in a major police investigation and needs the women to help solve the case.  He arranges to meet the women at a downtown hotel through a common acquaintance and stages a sexual assault for them to participate in.  So far 4 victims have come forward but police believe there could be more.  They're urging anyone else who may have fallen to this scam to give them a call.
