Woman Bilked in Lottery Scam

KSAL Staff - March 21, 2016 12:09 pm

A Salina woman has been bilked in a telephone lottery scam.

Police say that 59-year-old woman was called on Friday and was told she had won a $2.5 million dollar Jamaican Lottery.

She was told that an initial $100 fee was needed.  After wiring the money through Western Union, she received another call, asking for another $100, which she sent.

The woman discovered that it was a scam when a third request money for money was made.

Total loss is $200.

The smart crooks do not need to break into business or homes to steal. To many old ladies willing to send their money to them.
